I have a BS in Religion (Biblical Studies) from Liberty and have just completed my MAT (Biblical Studies and Theology) at Fuller. I would like to teach, preferably at Bible colleges or seminaries -- while I also pastor -- which requires a PhD. But, many schools require an MDiv (and won't accept an MAT), other language proficiencies (French, German, and perhaps another ancient language), a thesis (Fuller doesn't offer a thesis track), etc. This limits my choices. Also, my wife is a nurse in California, and moving out of state (or the country) to complete a PhD would make it incredibly difficult for her to get a job. So, I need to find a school that is accredited and credible, either a distance program or a school located in the Los Angeles area, where I could do PhD work in New Testament, Biblical Studies, Theology, or Apologetics. South African Theological Seminary seems like a possibility, and I have heard of Andersonville, but I do not know of any other schools, nor of how credible a place like SATS would be in the states. I know these questions get asked a lot, but I feel that mine might be a bit different from usual. Has anyone any advice or suggestions for me, given the situation described above? Thanks ahead of time. PS: Yes, I know you cringed when I said "Fuller". And you're fully justified in doing so.
