Frank Beckwith has confirmed that he and his wife decided seven weeks ago to join the Roman Catholic Church. He also gave me permission to pass this information along to the list. He will have more to say about their decision and its timing after he has interacted with other leaders in the Evangelical Theological Society, of which Beckwith is the current president. He is aware that the timing of his conversion to Catholicism during his tenure as ETS [Evangelical Theological Society] president will be upsetting to many evangelicals.
In Christʼs service,

My thoughts on this: It is the equivalent of a small earthquake (4.0) in Evangelical Christendom.
Watch for multiple aftershocks.
If Frank Beckwith hadn't been returning to the faith of his childhood, the quake would have been much larger.
Although I disagree with many of the teachings of the Catholic Church, I believe it holds to key Christian doctrines and many within it know and love Jesus Christ. There will never be peace on this earth between the Protestant Church and the Catholic Church; if history has taught us anything, it has taught us this.
I can only hope that God gives us an extra measure of grace in dealing with each other.
