Proposed amendment for the ETS constitution

Ray Van Neste and Denny Burk are once again trying to get the Evangelical Theological Society to amend the society's constitution. I support the amendment and encourage all ETS members to vote in favor of it. The ETS meets this week and consideration of the proposal is on the agenda. The odds are stacked against it since it will require a super-majority to pass.

For an update on the effort, check out Denny's blog. For background info, go the the Amend ETS Blog.

Pres of ETS joins the Roman Catholic Church

Francis Beckwith, Baylor University professor of church-state relations, has returned to the Roman Catholic Church. He recently has been restored to full communion, and his wife has been accepted as a catechumen. He gives his reasons and explains the timing of his announcement on his blog, linked above. James White has an interesting commentary on the announcement.

These are certainly curious days when the President of the Evangelical Theological Society resigns his position in order to return to full communion with the RCC.
