Scott McConnell on The Bible’s Antichrist

Scott McConnell

Executive Director, Lifeway Research


Scott McConnell serves as the Executive Director of Lifeway Research, an evangelical research organization, based in Nashville, Tennessee.

McConnell was interviewed for “The Bible’s Antichrist: Real person or symbolic?”, a special report.

Lifeway Research conducted a telephone survey of Protestant pastors regarding their views on end-times theology.

“It was surprising that there’s so little agreement among pastors about end-times issues,” said McConnell.

He says there’s more agreement about the “Antichrist” than other elements related to end-times.

“Half of Protestant pastors agreed that the “Antichrist” is a figure who will arise sometime in the future, and that’s distinct from some of the other responses because they were thinking of a single figure,” he said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
