A Message from the President

A Message from the President:

As President, I am aware of some concern in our constituency for more clarity on the significance of recent events at Westminster.

While the theological direction of Westminster Theological Seminary is ultimately under the aegis of the Seminary's Board of Trustees, and the task of theological direction will undoubtedly be the focus of the Board's labors in the coming months,  it seems appropriate in light of constituency concern  for the administration of the Seminary to address in the interim some important aspects of the controversy through which we have passed.

As we ponder Westminster's role in the current theological controversies occurring in the midst of the changing face of evangelical theology, I am pleased to call your attention to two pieces posted here by Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Carl Trueman and Vice President for Advancement, Dr. David Garner.
