And the letters keep coming. Meanwhile, Emmanuel is strangely, oddly, inappropriately quiet and apparently wish to leave Chris Rollston in limbo. What could be worse?

I received the following letter from Dr. Ronald Hendel at the University of California, Berkeley, which I am posting below. I have added Dr. Hendel’s letter to Dr. Rollston’s list of public supporters here.


Dear President Sweeney and Dean Holland,

I join my colleagues in attesting to the superb scholarship of Prof. Chris Rollston.  He brings credit to your seminary.  His views expressed in a column in the Huffington Post ought not to be a concern to an accredited institution of higher learning.  Infringement of this principle would be a very serious matter to accrediting institutions, the AAUP, and the membership of the SBL.

Sincerely,

Ronald Hendel

  1. When will Emanuel deal with this? Don’t they know their name is already mud? Who would want a degree from Emanuel now?
