Ryerse is a graduate of Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College) in Clarks Summit, PA and Biblical Theological Seminary in Hatfield, PA. Summit University has roots in the fundamentalist General Association of Regular Baptist Churches. Biblical Theological Seminary is a generally evangelical seminary founded when theologian Allen McRae broke ranks with fundamentalist crusader Carl McIntire. Ryerse has since left fundamentalism and now pastors a more progressive evangelical congregation.
At one point early in the film, Ryerse notes that one his favorite books is “Feinberg’s Systematic Theology.” I did not know that John Feinberg, Paul Feinberg, or their father Charles Feinberg ever wrote a complete systematic theology. Perhaps I did not hear this correctly.
He is considering another run in 2020.
