Tony Campolo
Influential Baptist preacher, sociologist, prolific author

Named by Christianity Today as one of the 25 most influential preachers of the last 50 years, Dr. Tony Campolo made headlines in the 1990s when he agreed to be a spiritual counselor to President Bill Clinton. An ordained minister, Campolo has served American Baptist churches in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and is a frequent commentator on religion and politics. Although conservative on some social issues, Campolo argues that Christians' political focus should be on poverty.

Campolo is professor emeritus of Sociology at Eastern University in St. Davids, Pennsylvania, and founder of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education, an organization that develops schools and social programs in various third world countries and in cities across North America.

The author of 32 books, his most recent titles are "Speaking My Mind: The Radical Evangelical Prophet Tackles the Tough Issues Christians Are Afraid to Face," "Which Jesus," "The Church Enslaved (co-authored by Michael Battle)," and "Letters to a Young Evangelical." Campolo is presently an associate pastor of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia. Campolo and his wife Peggy have two grown children and four grandchildren.
