New College Franklin

Many readers of this blog probably already know of the work we began 18 months ago to establish New College Franklin, a four-year liberal arts college--following in the footsteps of the great pioneers of the classical and Christian tradition. The work continues behind the scenes as we prepare our application for authorization by the State of Tennessee--no little feat. Lord willing, we hope to have the license for state authorization complete in 2009 so we can open officially and begin offering our courses for full credit.

Just this past week, we released our first e-newsletter from the college. If you are not already on the mailing list, you can sign up to receive this and all future newsletters--just e-mail our dean of students and administrator, Matt Vest, and he will bring you quickly up to speed (

We are also well on the way to achieving our goal to have at least fifty "Psalm 89 Founders" join us in building strong financial foundations for the school. We are convinced that this work of covenantal education and succession is more critical now than ever. Won't you join us and support the growing work of New College Franklin?

Dear George,

Sorry to contact you this way. I don't know if you remember me, but I'm the Black Minister from Charlotte, a protégé of David Drye, who became extremely pro-life after I found out what an abortion is. We met on several occasions during the years that Randall Terry ran his farm school up in Binghampton.

I need to get my hands on a dozen copies of your book "Grand Illusion" as soon as possible, as a half dozen Charlotte citizens and me are forming an educational think-tank to try and pierce the darkness that's devastating our community.

We will hold our second meeting in two weeks and there should be twelve people in attendance. I would like to present each of them a copy of Grand Illusion to get them started. Please let me know how I can get them by then.

Sincerely yours,

Rev. Ronnie Wallace

PS. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
