Joel Edwards (Evangelical Alliance)
Joel Edwards was the General Director of the Evangelical Alliance until the end of 2008. He is now International Director for Micah Challenge and is also a Commissioner of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. He has presented on the BBC Radio 4 feature of The Today programme, Thought for the Day.
When Edwards left the Evangelical Alliance, he made public statements stating that he was unhappy with the focus by the media on the "eccentric fringe" of British evangelical Christianity, specifically the frequent remarks of Stephen Green from Christian Voice, whom Edwards considers an "extremist", and the "naïve and controversial" Andrea Minichiello Williams from the Lawyers' Christian Fellowship.
