Westminster Theological Seminary Plunges Deeper into Fundamentalism

Now that my book (Consider No Evil: Two Faith Traditions and the Problem of Academic Freedom in Religious Higher Education) is out, I thought that I might have given my last word on Westminster Theological Seminary. There was a time, in the heat of the Logan and Enns situation, that a day didn’t go by where that school didn’t cross my mind. About a year or so after I left, I realized that I no longer thought about the school unless Continue reading…

Book News: When It Rains It Pours

This has been a busy week for book news for me and not just for one of my books.

First—news from newest to oldest—according to my publisher, my forthcoming book, Consider No Evil: Two Faith Traditions and the Problem of Academic Freedom in Religious Higher Education, should be released in July/early August. I’m a little fuzzy on precise date just yet, but I will update things here when I know. In the meantime, I also hear a pre-order page should be up relatively soon at Amazon. I’ll announce that here when it is available. It will be released as paperback ($24), hardcover ($39), and Kindle ($9.99) editions, but I’m not entirely sure if it will happen all at once.
