Detroit Seminary: We have modified the program to accomplish three goals: (1) to emphasize the value of the program in equipping students to do quality research, (2) to bring the program in line with current practice in the academic community, and (3) to better serve current and prospective students.
"It’s that most wonderful time of the year: grading season. As I’ve noted before, there’s an occasional silver lining to this otherwise purgatorial duty, namely, occasionally encountering an amusing typo ... as an act of solidarity with my fellow professors, I now post a second batch.(All are genuine)."
Is it really a seminary education if we are not worshiping together, praying with one another or talking about Jesus between classes? . . . Students can learn online. Friendships can form online. God can be heard through computer speakers, but it is hard to imagine the Lord’s Supper as a Skype meeting.
"PhD's are becoming more and more common, particularly in the church. ... Are you wishing to teach at a seminary or use your PhD in the pastoral ministry? I know literally dozens of able, gifted men who have PhD's but do not have a position at a Seminary. Be warned: unless you are incredibly gifted or you have very good contacts (i.e., people in high places), a Seminary position will not automatically fall into your lap once you're finished. It likely never will."
