The Internet has been abuzz for the last several days with the news that Dr. Philip G. Ryken, senior minister at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been elected as the new president of Wheaton College. Apparently the news of his election was leaked to Christianity Today and picked up by other bloggers before Dr. Ryken had a chance to announce the move to his congregation. [It should be noted that the church's leadership (or "session," in Presbyterian parlance) was fully aware and had given their blessing to Dr. Ryken to pursue this new calling.]

Rather than pile on with our own view of a "scandal" that has already blown over, we're pleased to join with the many others who are passing on their good wishes to Dr. Ryken and his family! Dr. Ryken is a contributor to Modern Reformation. If you're a subscriber to the magazine, you've probably benefited from his articles over the years. If you're not yet a subscriber, we've temporarily "unlocked" all of Dr. Ryken's articles in our archives. Take a moment now to get a sense of how the members at Tenth Presbyterian, and soon Wheaton College, have benefited from Dr. Ryken's ministry:

How Can Jesus be the Only Way? (March/April 1998)

Rachel, Dry Your Tears (November/December 2004)

A Review of D. A. Carson's The Gagging of God (March/April 2007)

Several of Dr. Ryken's books have been reviewed in the pages of Modern Reformation. Here are several of the positive reviews that he's received over the last several years:

A Review of Courage to Stand: Jeremiah's Battle Plan for Pagan Time (January/February 2000)

A Review of Jeremiah and Lamentations: From Sorrow to Hope (January/February 2002)

A Review of Written in Stone: The Ten Commandments and Today's Moral Crisis (September/October 2004)

    A Reformed scholar / pastor at Wheaton! What kind of dispensation is this?

    The writings of both father (Leland) and son (Phil) have been such a rich blessing to me, and I know to a host of others.

    As a member of Tenth, though we are sad to see Dr. Ryken go, we rejoice in his willingness to be used by God to go where ever his Savior leads him. We have been blessed so richly by Phil's ministry over the years it would be selfish for us not to share him with another group of people that they would experience the influence of such a godly man. Let Wheaton rejoice. If you have ever wanted to see someone filled with the Holy Spirit, forget about T.D. Jakes or Benny Hinn. Phil Ryken walks with God! at least as much as I can tell. Tenth loves, loves, loves our Pastor. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with him.
