Beckwith Returns to Roman Catholic Church and Resigns from ETS

I haven't gone to many ETS (Evangelical Theological Society) meetings. The last one I attended was in 1999 in the Boston area. Generally I would run into my friends from College Press Publishing at such events. Generally, the College Press rep (in those days) was John Hunter, who now is working as Reference Librarian at OCC's Seth Wilson Library. John introduced me to a couple of evangelical guys who had written books published by College Press, namely Gary Habermas and Francis Beckwith.

Beckwith, until May 5, was the president of the Evangelical Theological Society. He resigned on May 5 because he has returned to full communion within the Roman Catholic Church. He gives his own account of this spiritual journey on a blog for which he wrote, called Right Reason. There are many comments under that post, from those who applaud his decision, and those who do not. He remains as a tenured professor at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
