Speakers have included U.S. and foreign officials, working journalists, academics, and international businessmen.

Kimball, chair of the Department of Religion at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. He is the author of three books, including "Striving Together: A Way Forward in Christian-Muslim Relations and Religion," "Politics and Oil: The Volatile Mix in the Middle East," and "Angle of Vision: Christians and the Middle East."  CLICK HERE
