Dr. Frank Beckwith of Baylor University has resigned his position as the president of the Evangelical Theological Society. Why? Because he has been received into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church. Read about it here. Apparently, even in 2007 it’s not cool for an evangelical theologian to be a Catholic.

Even more interesting is Dr. Beckwith’s blog (and the wide array of commentary that it engenders). Check out a few posts here, here and especially here. Alas, you don’t have to look very far to see just how pervasive anti-Catholicism remains in our world, particularly among conservative Protestants. But let me not end on that negative note: here is a gracious, wonderful letter written by an evangelical pastor in support of Beckwith’s conversion.
