Continuing my series of unsolicited testimonials I’ve received in response to my book Inspiration and Incarnation: Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament.
I have followed the story of you and WTS with quite a bit of attention lately. I was in the audience of the ETS discussion of I&I a few years back and of course have read with profit your book and many of your other writings. As an outsider looking in at the situation you seem to have conducted yourself with admirable grace. I know that this must be a challenging time for you and your family and you are certainly in my prayers. Furthermore, I hope that you know that your book was not written in vain. It has spawned so many conversations between me and my fellow PhD-student friends (I am ABD at [A MAJOR RESEARCH INSITUTION and I just took a position at [AN EVANGELICAL SEMINARY]). I trust that the Lord will use your book in many fruitful ways now and in the future. To be sure, this is surely a watershed moment in evangelicalism and I pray that we will look back on it positively.
If you will be at SBL in Boston I would love to buy you coffee or lunch or something and chat. I wish you the very best.
