    Can anyone on this board tell me anything about Birmingham Theological Seminary? All I know is its reformed and a good amount of the professors have graduated from the school. Link below.

    Why don't you attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary at the extension in Houston.

    I have a few pastor friends that attend the Houston campus and they say its great. They say most of the professors are reformed in their thinking. It is probably the top school on my list followed by Southern. I like to look at all the options and then make a decision based on that.

    Though I really don't know much about the school except for what I see on their web site, they do seem to be a credible program. It would appear that they are growing and progressing. It certainly doesn't have the earmarks of a degree mill and it seems more substantial than Andersonville or Bethany.

    C B S,

    At one time there was an historically Black seminary in Birmingham. Is this it, or is this one connected with it or to it in any way? Le'meknow!

    If you are looking in Alabam, then you really do need to look @ Beeson @ Samford. It is Reformed as well as Ecumenical. They are conservative and have a High View, read Inerrancy, of Scripture.

    FWIW (for what it's worth)!

    sdg!

    Rhet,

    Wow thanks for the input. I really like Birmingham as a place to live. I have heard it is rough on crime, but I visited there and it seemed to be a great place to live.

    Convicted,

    The area around Beeson is still a pretty good place to live. Most of your crime takes place to the north and west of Beeson.

    Ed,

    Go to the Samford Bookstore (Beeson is on Samford's campus)....lots of robberies take place there.

    In addition, if you'll visit their cafeteria on Sunday night (the "purge the leftovers" meal), you'll find some environmental crimes...

    And finally, there's a chemistry professor from back in the late '80's that will SWEAR that I "stole" the only A he gave. But it ain't true...
    :D
