Some of the speakers at the Strategic Perspective Conference
An Old Testament prophet warned that without knowledge, “my people are destroyed,” and the astute are quick to point out that there’s a difference between information and knowledge.
That will be a focus of a conference featuring WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah as well as senior WND reporter Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., along with a number of other top experts.
The event is the Koinonia Institute’s Strategic Perspective Conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Nov. 4-5.
Along with Farah and Corsi, other speakers are Jim Puplava of Financial Sense; William Welty of Global Settlement Foundation; Chuck Missler of Koinonia House; Walid Shoebat, a former PLO militant turned Christian; John Loeffler of Steel-on-Steel Ministries; Ron Matsen of Calvary Chapel; and Steve Elwart, KI senior analyst.
Koinonia Institute is a Christian think tank that brings together some of today’s brightest Christian thinkers to share their insider perspectives on today’s events and how they relate to the Bible.
“Information is easy to come by,” the sponsors say in a promo. “In fact, information glut is a problem we all struggle with, with so many media vying for our attention. Internet, radio, television, newspapers, magazines, and more are all screaming loudly about what is happening in the world today, but there is one thing that Christians need that they don’t offer: Perspective.”
The weekend at the Coeur d’Alene Resort also offers a special dinner and private briefing with Joseph Farah and a Sunday morning breakfast cruise.
The Koinonia Institute said that “extremely turbulent times” are coming that “will test all of our presumptions and beliefs.”
“It is our objective to identify, encourage, and equip leadership for the challenges ahead.”
Farah made a name for himself with traditional daily newspapers prior to his founding of WND – running the Sacramento Union, directing the news operation of the Los Angeles Herald Examiner for six years and serving as editor in chief of a group of California dailies and weeklies. He has written for such publications as the Wall Street Journal, Jerusalem Post, National Review, TV Guide, Reason, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times and a host of other national, international and regional publications.
Farah’s latest book is “The Tea Party Manifesto: A Vision for an American Rebirth.”
Farah has also authored more than a dozen books, including “Stop The Presses: The Inside Story of the New Media Revolution” and “Taking America Back.” He also collaborated on Rush Limbaugh’s 1994 No. 1 best-seller “See, I Told You So.”
Farah’s many journalism awards include honors for reporting to writing headlines to honesty and courage in journalism to editing and newspaper design.
Corsi’s newest book is Where’s the Birth Certificate?”
With a Ph.D. from Harvard in political science, Corsi serves as senior staff reporter for online news giant WND. He also is the author of two No. 1 New York Times nonfiction bestsellers, “Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry” (with co-author John O’Neill) and “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality.” An economics expert, he is also a senior managing director at Gilford Securities.
