    Hello everyone.

    I noticed that Andersonville Theological Seminary offered Biblical Language courses. I'm wondering if any graduates of Andersonville could explain the depth of the courses (From Hebrew 1, 2, and 3 to Greek 1, 2, and 3.) Do you mostly play around in Strong's or is there more to it?

    Just curious.

    I e-mailed Andersonville and asked if they could let me do the Biblical Languages courses using a payment program. They agreed.

    I have a feeling they will introduce greek/hebrew tools and not delve into the languages. If I am wrong I'll eat my fedora!:tonofbricks:

    And you are considering working on a PhD? Why even bother with Andersonville? Just curious...

    Not from Andersonville, no sir. I am simply curious what Andersonville's Biblical Languages courses are like. The D. Phil would be done at St. Alcuin House Seminary. I already have experience from them. It's no walk in the park...

    Robb,
    I am confused...you already have a Seminary Doctorate, but you need language training from ATS...I would think this would argue against the "walk in the park" statement.

    I don't need language from ATS. I'm merely want to test the waters of ATS' Biblical Languages. It will not cost much, and if I decide it's not up-to-par, I'll drop it.:type:

    They charge an arm, leg, and firstborn to take the courses. No skin off my back. :D

    I think, though I could be wrong, that the courses do not originate with Andersonville. So they "might" be pretty good. Though I would not spend money to find out. :)
