Francis J. Beckwith, a prominent leader amongst evangelicals in America, a guy who also co-authored one of my favorite books, Relativism, has apparently converted to Roman Catholicism. I find it strange, namely because he was the president and a member of the Evangelical Theological Society but has since resigned both offices. I guess he would probably agree with the Evangelicals and Catholics Together statement, a document J.I. Packer and Chuck Colson also signed. I am not understanding this … even people of the Reformed tradition (which has been known for strongly upholding the Five Solas of the Reformation against the Catholic Church), seem to be floundering in their convictions and agreeing with documents like the E.C.T. statement. It seems to me relativism is taking its toll, even on a guy who co-authored a fantastic book refuting the philosophical system that is so prevalent in our society.
