Bob Jones University Hires a Non-Jones as 5th President.

Big news in fundamentalist-land.  Bob Jones University has a new president and his surname is not "Jones."

And he did not even attend Bob Jones as an undergraduate (although he does an M.A. from the institution and is a current board member).

His name is Stephen D. Pettit and you can learn more about him here.

The announcement:



Notice that the candidates had to meet BJU standards on these issues:
  • Evangelism (I assume they are for it)
  • Fundamentalism  (I assume they are for it)
  • Biblical Separation (I assume they are for it)
  • The Charismatic Movement (I assume they are against it)
  • Reformed Theology and the New Calvinism  (I think they are against it)
  • KJV-Onlyism (I assume they are for it)
  • Contemporary Christian Music (I assume they are against it)
  • Philosophy of Christian Higher Education From a Biblical Perspective  (I assume they are for it)
