The board of trustees of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary met on October 22nd and affirmed the leadership and evangelistic heart of Dr. Paige Patterson. This comes after board Chairman Steven James, of Lake Charles, Louisiana promised messengers in the Baltimore convention that an investigation would ensue.
This week on the podcast, we discuss issues surrounding the allegations made by a Dallas area television station against Ed Young, Jr., and Fellowship Church. Joining us as our guest to help define some of those issues is Dr. John Mark Yeats. Dr. Yeats is assistant professor of church history at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and author, along with his SWBTS colleague Dr. Thomas White, of Franchising McChurch, a book that deals with issues of commercialism and “branding” among large contemporary churches. We went over our self-imposed time limit of half an hour, but hopefully listeners will find the discussion to be worth the time.
