Continuing the discussion from WSJ: A Compromise on Creationism:
There were several helpful comments during this meeting. A couple new pieces of information:
BJU is preparing a response to me, which I am told that they will send me directly. I will make it public after I review it.
Though I had not brought my book up at all, the TRACs president had read it, and clarified that the GAE, was consistent with their belief statement, because the GAE is consistent with a historical-grammatical reading of Genesis. This was a very significant statement from them.
TRACs is also making a response, though I do not know if or when it will be given to me. Given TRACs track record here, which has been professional and communicative, I expect they will give me a response, which I will share after review.
Most of the hearing focused on totally different issues, and accordance with their guidelines I was not allowed to ask any questions. However, I had a few very positive chats back and forth with the TRACs president.
