    One thing that can be said is that they will have a beautiful campus on which to start the college. Just curious... are your concerns regarding the "great books" structure of the program?

    Why do we need another evangelical college? Would be my first major question.

    You know a "great books" curriculum has never really appealed to me. It just doesn't, I mean why spend all that money on books and tuition when I could just get the list, go to my local library and do the same work for free? I dunno.

    I'd be interested in other perspectives. I am a fan of education, but I am getting more and more befuddled by the explosion of quasi-academic institutions in the US. I'd be interested in seeing how they expect to help...specifically. :)

    I get your point, but couldn't this be stated of any text? Couldn't you simply get the required text list of any course and save yourself the tuition money? The value is in the way the course integrates the texts into a learning experience.

    I do not presume to speak for Dr. Bob, but my concern is that their doctrinal position is "mere Christianity," which too often translates into what is not Christianity, at least not orthodox Christianity. It certainly won't be Baptist.

    My question is: Where will they get their students? I don't see where they will find enough students desiring this particular emphasis to fill that campus. Time will tell.
