PHC Profs go to the mat in CT May 15, 2006

Posted by moverstreet in Bible & Theology.

In a previous post (here), I cited the LA Times report of the shake-up in Purcellville at Patrick Henry College. For the record, the professors have gone public with their side in CT, clarifying the waters on the issues they explain are at the root of the problem.

In the article, “Shakeup at Patrick Henry College: New president and academic dean announced after 5 of school’s 16 faculty quit in protest,” the professors record a disagreement with the president (now moving to chancellor).

Issues of contention include the use of the “lifeboat” game in class, published articles on general revelation, president Farris’ alleged expression that Augustine “was in hell,” and the list goes on . . . .

Without accreditation, PHC could be in serious trouble if the positions aren’t filled quickly and explanation given on the dissonance between faculty & administration.

Read the article (here).
