Allen Hertzke is Co-Chair of the “Christianity and Freedom” initiative’s Steering Committee and the David Ross Boyd Professor of Political Science at the University of Oklahoma. He is one of America’s most distinguished scholars of religion and politics. He has written extensively on religious advocacy in politics, and, in particular, faith-motivated activism in foreign policy. He is the author of Freeing God’s Children: The Unlikely Alliance for Global Human Rights (2004), which describes the movement behind the International Religious Freedom Act and the struggle for its passage. He is also editor of The Future of Religious Freedom: Global Challenges (2012). For the “Christianity and Freedom” initiative, Hertzke wrote an essay on Christian Contributions to the World’s Newest Nation, in which he explored Christian contributions to the successful struggle of the southern Sudanese people for freedom and political independence.
