I just learned that Frank Beckwith has been awarded tenure at Baylor. This is a huge development for Baylor, signifying a decisive reversal for the forces of secularization that have done everything in their power of undermine Baylor’s Christian identity. Note that Frank was opposed because of his openness to ID (not outright support) and his refusal to disassociate himself from Seattle’s Discovery Institute. Frank’s case has been reported on this blog in the past (search “Beckwith”). World Magazine and the Chronicle of Higher Education have reported on Frank’s upcoming tenure decision in the last two weeks.
