    Knox Seminary Appoints Jim Belcher....

    Okay, I must confess that I did not even know that Knox Seminary was still functioning, but I saw this today:

    OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE - Dr. Jim Belcher Joins the Faculty at Knox Theological Seminary | Facebook

    Jim Belcher was the church planter of a Redeemer PCA here in SoCal. He has also written "Deep Church" which has had some success as a book for Redeemerish pastors.

    Any thoughts on what this says about the way that Knox is moving? Is this good, bad, or will it keep Knox under the radar (at least under mine)?

    I really appreciated "Deep Church," so I can't see this is a bad thing... but I was recently accused of being part of the "avant garde of the PCA" (whatever that means) so take that as you will.

    Rae, I really have no opinion re: Belcher or Deep Church. I have a couple of members who used to attend Redeemer in Newport Beach- they have opinions- but I don't. I am just wondering what others think of how this will effect the direction of Knox. Like I said, I really did not realize that Knox was still a seminary.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
