Heres a useful summary of whats going on at Baylor, whose president, Robert Sloan, wants to turn it into an excellent research university with an explicitly Christian worldview. Theres a lot to be said for this project, and some very good folks are saying it. Heres a couple of letters from leading academics (not all conservative by any stretch of the imagination, especially if you include Nicholas Wolterstorff and Stanley Hauerwas in the mix). And heres Richard John Neuhaus speech at Sloans inauguration.
Ive kind of promised Peter a longer piece on developments at Baylor. Consider this the smallest down payment.
