RMNBlog: An open letter to Richard Hays, Dean of The Divinity School at Duke University

From Chase Bannister Richard, My heavens – I’ve been reading and hearing about these last months at Duke Divinity School, and it strikes me that it is partly my responsibility to share with you that I, along with so many, expect more from you than this.

“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own.”  …
