Prof exit @ SWBTS boils over into blogs and Dallas paper January 20, 2007

The exit of Dr. Sheri Klouda from Southwestern Seminary’s faculty has created a flurry of responses. Read the Dallas Morning News here and the provocative Wade Burleson post here. Emotions run high on issues like this, but as I understand it, Dr. Klouda was not removed or dismissed; she was told she would not be given tenure. All things considered, her gender enters into the conversation as a factor in her consideration as a member of the faculty in the school of theology, not for dismissal. Dr. Klouda left when she secured another teaching position. Teaching Bible and Theology in the church and seminaries (in the SBC, under the authority of the churches) has historically been reserved to the biblical position of men teaching men and others and women teaching women. Exceptions made by past presidents or agency heads run contrary to the historic convictions of the people in the pew who appoint the boards who elect convention leaders, including Patterson as president of Southern Baptist’s Texas seminary.

I’m trying to find info. on Dr. William Tolar to attach w/ one of his sermons : Thew Creatuin: Chance or Choice.
I recall he had a background in Science before Seminary but can’t recall any specifics.

E evidente che il luogo e stato fatto dalla persona che realmente conosce il mestiere!
