Michael Cromartie, Who Helped Faith, Politics Meet, Dead at 67

Michael Cromartie, who helped bring Christian scholars and secular journalists together, has died of cancer at age 67.

Cromartie's Faith Angle Forum has been held every year since 1999, to discuss the most "crucial issues facing our nation," according to the group's website.

"In a political arena often dominated by competition, power grabs, and culture war debates, Cromartie stuck out by offering a friendlier, humbler approach," Christianity Today wrote of Cromartie.

"Michael Cromartie was different from what most people think of when they think 'evangelicals and politics. Thanks be to God,'" Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, said.

Former White House faith adviser to President Barack Obama Michael Wear told Christianity Today that Cromartie was "one of Christianity's principal ambassadors in Washington, [representing] Jesus with joyful confidence," adding, "I've seen the effects of his life and work up close, and both the church and the nation are better off because of him."
