Fort Wayne native Timothy Goeglein, a former aide to President George W. Bush, will speak Jan. 14 at Concordia Theological Seminary.

Goeglein’s public forum is titled “Faith in the Halls of Power: Christianity and American Public Life.” It will be from noon to 1 p.m. in Room 7 of Loehe Hall, the seminary announced Tuesday.

Goegleinis the author of “The Man in the Middle: An Inside Account of Faith and Politics in the George W. Bush Era.”

He was the Bush administration’s liaison to religious and conservative groups before he resigned in 2008 upon his admission that he had plagiarized many columns he had written over several years for The News-Sentinel.

Goeglein, a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, is vice president for external affairs for Focus on the Family, a Christian-based, socially conservative public policy organization. He lives in Washington, D.C.
