A Note of Thanks to Colleagues

27 December 2012

After much reflection, I have voluntarily resigned from Emmanuel Christian Seminary, having come to an amicable resolution with Emmanuel. For all of the support and encouragement I have received from many colleagues throughout the world, from several marvelous colleagues at Emmanuel, from many former students, and from many current students, I am so very grateful. Indeed, all of the support has been consoling, gratifying, and humbling. I wish that I would have been able to reply individually to all who sent notes of encouragement and support to me, but this was not possible. So please allow me to say here, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so very much. I am more grateful than words can express. At this juncture, it is most useful for me to be able to move on with my life, career, research, and writing. I look forward to finding a new and permanent academic home and I happily welcome assistance in that regard. As I depart, I also wish to verbalize my hope that Emmanuel will flourish in the future, as it has in the past.

  1. Emmanuel’s tragic and foolhardy acts resulting in your departure will be GWU’s gain. There, you will be respected as you deserve to be. Your future is bright- Emmanuel’s- dim.

  2. This breaks my heart, Chris. Emmanuel is loosing a wonderful professor. I pray that God is leading you in a better direction, and I know – I KNOW – that wherever you go, you will be a blessing to those you touch. I love you, brother.

  3. There will be many who will love to have an outstanding scholar on their faculty.

  4. Sad to see you go but I know you will be successful in whatever you do. I hope the students at GWU enjoy the Dead Sea Scrolls class as much as Jack (in utereo) and I did! You will be missed! -Becky

  5. […] has given way to truth.3) According to his website, much beleaguered Old Testament professor Christopher Rollston has resigned from his position at Emmanuel Christian Seminary over an issue that began with this […]

  6. Spoken with class and dignity, as always.

  7. Blessings on your new adventure. your students at Emmanuel will miss you, but thankfully you will still be doing what God called you to be and do.
