    Interesting article in the FT Worth Star Telegram today. The Carroll Institute will be a new model of seminary education. Conservative and technology based, using many distance learning techniques (Internet, email etc.) Traditional Baptist theology would be taught.

    I believe one of the goals will be to provide a great seminary education at a reasonable cost, that will be accessable to more potential students.

    This would fill a void in Baptist seminary education. Right now, most "Baptist" internet/technology based seminaries are either IFB, unaccredited, or both.

    The timing of this announcement is odd, considering that SWBTS just hired PP, but I'm inclined to think of that as coincidence. Rather than a political statement that the new Southwestern will be "too fundy" or that Truett is too liberal, I really see this as several guys with experience in education looking to put their experience to good use, to fill a niche in Baptist (SBC?) higher ed, and maybe to pocket some more retirement income in the process.

    I wish them success.

    The primary problem this seminary is designed to address has to do with the rising costs of institutional education.

    It does not have much to do with Patterson. If anything, it has more to do with the Dilday firing back in 1994. These people were already discussing this type of seminary, but the Dilday firing motivated them to start fleshing out their ideas. I was “in the loop” in the beginning stages of discussion for this type of seminary, but the technological limitations (no broad band internet service available in homes) and the rapid rise of Truett seminary delayed those plans.

    So do I. [​IMG]

As anyone who has read deeply in the Founders can tell you, they were great believers in all of the above! Were they still alive today, the two Manleys, Broadus, J.P Boice, Dagg, Mell, Carroll, and the lot would have been considered ultra-ultra-conservative by the "moderates"
