The Institute for Religion and Democracy (IRD), and the broader evangelical community, has lost two leaders within the space of a few months.

President Diane Knippers, “an intellectual heavyweight who rallied opposition to the liberal drift of mainline churches,” passed away Monday at the age of 53.

Ed Robb, co-founder of the IRD in 1981, also died recently, passing away on December 14.
