More on Beckwith's Tenure Denial
I posted yesterday on Baylor University denying tenure to Francis Beckwith. Since then, I have found some more helpful commentaries.

Yesterday, Joseph Bottum wrote an excellent post over at First Things online. While it is not short, this entry is worth reading in its entirety.

Additionally, today Denyse O’Leary weighs in on The Pearcey Report: "Baylor’s Problem With Beckwith." Arguing against Beckwith's denial of tenure being a result of his conservatism, she maintains that it was because he is brilliant. I'm not sure that I buy her argument, but I fully agree with her on Beckwith's brilliance. If you have any doubts, check out some of his online essays.

John, I think that you really do have one of the most informative blogs around. ALWAYS informative, especially in the academic news. Keep up the great work!

P.S.- you look totally different in your new picture.

Jonathan,

You are far too generous! Justin Taylor's blog is hands down the theological gold standard and I don't even come close. Nevertheless, I'm glad that some are finding my blog helpful.

About my picture, that's what five years and three kids will do to you! :-) My old picture was taken when I began attending seminary, so I figured a new one was overdue.
