    Gentle people:

    Here is a program that I actually first saw on the ad header above on the BB. It is a Master of Divinity degree, from an accredited University, that is 75 sem. hrs., that is all on line.

    Here it is:

    What think ye?

    There is only one draw back that I can personally see: That is: the degree must be done in a semi-Pelagian, Arminian, holiness, Pentecostal, Nazarene context. Now, if one can stand that then this might be a great thing to do.

    Let me know what you think?!

    I would still recommend Luther Rice or Liberty Seminary, both of which also offer fully accredited MDivs online. ;)

    What do I think?

    Rhett, I think the program is a little over-priced at almost $33,000. I see no outstanding faculty and the courses are soft, IMHO. Did you see any language requirements whatsoever? (I don't see any undergraduate Biblical language requirements for admission either but I did notice that they require "inclusive language" in all papers. :laugh: Well, I think that may say something about where their priorities may be.) It's all methods with a smattering of history and theology. Then, it appears a little short on credits for a M.Div. too. Yet, I think people will take this program because they want a degree and this program is convenient, easy and accredited. I would bet, if I was a gambling soul, that unaccredited Whitefield Theological Seminary is significantly cheaper and more rigorous than this program. So, it's a choice between an accredited degree and an education, IMHO. I would opt for the education.


    Personally, I don't think much of it as a M.Div. even if it is accredited.
