Roberts Liardon -- Privileged to Receive Second Honorary Doctorate Degree in Theology

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) -  Internationally renowned author, public speaker, and spiritual leader Roberts Liardon is proud to receive his second Honorary Doctorate degree -- a rare and highly notable honor among the most prominent figures in society today. An Honorary Doctorate degree is reserved for only the most distinguished scientists, intellectuals, artists, leaders, and humanitarians who have made significant contributions to civilization. As a prolific writer and the founder of a global ministry, Liardon is being recognized for the positive effects of his efforts in helping the poor and needy at home and abroad, and for his role as an inspirational force in the Christian community for the past three decades. This honor will coincide with his 50th birthday, marking a momentous time in his life to be shared by the many people whose lives he has touched.

In December of 2011, Liardon received an Honorary Doctorate in Literature from The Wesley Synod of Canterbury, England. His literary achievements include his work, "I Saw Heaven," a retelling of his own spiritual experience, which he wrote at the age of 17. The book sold over 1.5 million copies, and its popularity helped him quickly become one of the leading public speakers in the Christian community. Inspired by God, Liardon continued writing historical and self-help books, amassing to over 70 titles. His most popular work, "God's Generals," is a master biographical account of some of the most important revivalists in Christian history, and dynamic works such as "Breaking Controlling Powers," published in 1988 and "Sharpen Your Discernment," released in 1997. To date, he has sold over 15 million copies of his books in over 125 countries. Encouraged to write by his own divine life, the globally renowned author and humanitarian has proven himself to be a voice that speaks to the present generation of believers. His message is relevant, profound, and deeply appreciated by readers worldwide. His first Honorary Doctorate marked his remarkable literary achievements as a successful writer and inspirational force within the global Christian community.

His second Honorary Doctorate, this time in Theology, recognizes Roberts Liardon's lifetime of efforts, not just as an author, religious historian, and public speaker, but also as an active spiritual leader. For decades, he has been connecting and organizing Christians to do the Lord's work and moving hearts towards God. As a young man in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he created what is known today as Roberts Liardon Ministries. When Liardon was in his mid-twenties, he moved to Southern California and founded one of the largest Christian Churches and Bible Colleges in Orange County. The Church became a base for his ministry work, including offering food, assistance, and religious support to the needy. Inspiring nearly 500 men and women, his ministry is celebrated for traveling around the globe in support of worthwhile causes such as providing food for the hungry and educating young people about how to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Roberts Liardon has established himself as one of the most important Christian authors and orators of this century. Through his global ministry, Roberts Liardon Ministries, he and his staff have touched millions, helping those in need and actively working towards improving the lives of people at home and abroad. He has been recognized numerous times for his efforts, including an Honorary Doctorate degree in Literature and being voted as the most Outstanding Young Man in America on two separate occasions. Having been hosted by kings, presidents, and political and religious leaders across the globe, Roberts Liardon continues to write books, fulfill a demanding speaking schedule, and to mentor the new generation to create a positive change in the church and society.
