As a long-time seminary student wannabe, I was very excited to see David Horton’s The Portable Seminary. Check it out here.
The need for a solid biblical education is as important as ever, and maybe more important than it has been for several hundred years. The pluralism of Western culture, along with the syncretism that’s become prevalent in the church, have made solid theological foundations essential for churches and their leaders. What’s difficult, in my opinion, is identifying a ‘good’ seminary. As a graduate-school student, I learned how important it is to take the right professor. In many ways, the courses are less important than the person teaching them, as weird as that sounds.
Do you think a seminary education is relevant and important for church leaders these days?
