    People laughed when Jerry Falwell got up and announced that he'd someday field a fully accredited university of national prominence with NCAA Division I athletics. Say what you will...he cast a huge vision that has come to fruition.

    I earned my M.A.R. through Liberty. the courses were tough, and as good as the faculty is, the "video professors" are better, including such lights as J.P. Moreland teaching Apologetics. Not only that, but Liberty has started a trend, as several established and accredited seminaries and schools with grad programs are offering non-traditional education (Reformed, Moody, etc.).

    I am proud to have a certificate from Liberty in Pastoral Counseling signed by Jerry, Ed Hinson, and Jay Adams. The more I see and hear from Liberty, the more I realize there is a place for a school such as this.

    Major,
    Did you find yourself able to exist well in the MAR program, you being Reformed and all?

    Based on years of study, I "challenged" the two basic theology classes (a grueling process) and passed both without taking the courses. I took "Ecclesiology and Eschatology", but I am basically a progressive dispy, so that was no problem.

    Interesting quote from the Gospel of John class taught by Elmer Towns--he said A.W. Pink's commentary on John was the best there is.....I agree, but never expected to hear him say so.

    The program was geared to expository preaching.

    I would rather have taken the RTS MA, but LU was approved for the GI Bill (had just enough left to finish the degree), and RTS wasn't.

    I love my Trinity PhD program--tough but good.

    Yeah, the RTS MA looks good, but has very little in terms of practical theology/ministry courses.

    Trinity gets it North Central accreditation visit in November.
