Michael Haykin has reviewed Francis Beckwith’s book Return to Rome.
One of the reasons I think that the ETS needs to do what Denny Burk and Ray Van Neste are proposing is to help people like Beckwith understand that the founders of the society did not mean to welcome “evangelical” Roman Catholics. The proposed amendment is actually rendering a service to such people. Otherwise they think they can sign on . . . So unless the ETS wants to let them sign on, in my view, we have a responsibility to make our views clear so that they understand that we don’t mean the word “evangelical” the way they are using it.
