Christianity Today's blog provides the following report about Westminster Theological Seminary, here in Philadelphia:
Westminster Theological Seminary Suspends Peter Enns
Enns is Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Hermeneutics and has taught at Westminster since 1994. Enns is the author of Inspiration and Incarnation: Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament (Baker 2005).

This Board action comes in the wake of several other shifts in Seminary faculty and staff. In particular, Sam Logan - former President and Chancellor of Westminster - has moved on to Biblical Theological Seminary as "Special Counsel" to their President and as Professor of Church History. Logan had served Westminster since 1979.

Also, Westminster's Associate Professor of New Testament, Stephen Taylor, has accepted a position in New Testament, also at Biblical Seminary. He had taught at Westminster since 1996.

As the Bowie song goes, "Ch-ch-ch-changes."
