Retired Vinson Synan, dean of the Regent University School of Divinity for 12 years, on June 30. Regent's enrollment quadrupled under the leadership of Synan, who will continue at the school as a distinguished professor of Christian history. Michael Palmer, chair of Evangel University's department of biblical studies and philosophy since 1992, will take over as dean in August.

Retiring Clyde Cook, 71, the seventh president of Biola University. Cook will step down next June following 25 years at the helm of the Christian university. Biola grew from three to six schools while led by Cook.

Defeated Roy Moore, by incumbent Alabama Governor Bob Riley in the state's Republican gubernatorial primary. Riley nearly doubled Moore's vote tally. Moore, 59, captured headlines in 2003 when the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court lost his job for defying a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse.
