I received the following letter from Dr. Katya Barbash, which I am posting below.
To whom it may concern:
I write this letter to state my sincere support and respect for Dr. Christopher Rollston. I am deeply disappointed with the Emmanuel Christian Seminary’s decision to terminate his position.
As a scholar of ancient history, I would like to express my regard for Dr. Rollston’s research and for his academic achievements. His interaction with both scholars and students evince a genuine reverence for history. His continuous effort to share his passion for the study of history and to inspire this passion in others deserves nothing but admiration.
Dr. Rollston’s dedication and integrity are praiseworthy, to say the least. In my opinion, any infringement of his intellectual freedom is disgraceful.
