Beckwith Tenure: Another Brief Out of Retirement Post

I transitioned out of the Reform Club to blog for American Spectator and Southern Appeal, but I was happy to see Christianity Today pointed to our coverage of the Francis Beckwith tenure controversy in their short mention of Beckwith's victory in the tenure fight.

Keep watching for more in this space. You never know what's going to happen with TRC.

Tenured • Francis Beckwith, associate professor of church-state studies at Baylor University, in September, following an appeal to the school's president. Baylor had denied Beckwith tenure in March, a decision that some attributed to his outspoken conservative Christian views on abortion, euthanasia, and the legality of teaching Intelligent Design. Beckwith, vice president of the Evangelical Theological Society, taught at Trinity International University from 1997 to 2002.

Cheers to our occasional commenter Dr. Frank Beckwith, whose estimable scholarly output alone justified tenure above the slugs who make up the academy, and to Hunter Baker, who knew an injustice when he saw one and wouldn't let it go.

This Budziszewski's for you.
