The Good Fortune of Wheaton College

Praise God for the new president of Wheaton College, Phil Ryken. I am truly overjoyed at his appointment there. Why? Well, I'm not an alumn, but I did visit Wheaton when I was looking at potential colleges. I held it in high esteem because of their commitment to Christ and to rigorous academics.

In recent years, they have not been a bastion of biblical fidelity in some respects--this is not to say that Wheaton has gone to the dogs; it hasn't. It is to say that their choice of Ryken speaks volumes about the future direction of the school.

Check out a nice photo-tour of his inauguration on the Wheaton College website, and go here for a more in-depth article on why this is a big deal.
