The President Steps Down

In what was quite a surprise for many, the president on the ETS (Evangelical Theological Society) has resigned.  The President, noted philosopher and theologian Francis Beckwith, stepped down after (re?)joining the Roman Catholic church.  He writes for a group blog, and has posted about this decision and subsequent stepping down as presidentof the ETS.

While i may not agree with Beckwith, i certainly wish him well.  Perhaps the most disheartening aspect of this situation is the uncharitable way man y protestants have handled it.  I pray for the best for Mr. Beckwith, and that he may continue to serve our Lord with joy.

Update:  The ETS executive committee has released its official statement regarding Beckwith’s resignation.
