The Waco Tribune-Herald is reporting that Baylor has named David Garland interim president. Dr. Garland currently serves as the dean of Truett Seminary. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Garland having studied under him while a student at Truett. He is an exceptional Bible scholar, a passionate preacher, and a man of the highest character. He has served as an administrator for the seminary (first as an associate dean, then as dean) for several years always to high praise. I stay out of Baylor politics, but do think this is a good move for Baylor during the transition between presidents - I'll certainly put Dr. Garland in my prayers and ask that you do as well.
