    I don't know how to do 'links' but merely type the name into a "search engine." All kinds of stuff will come up, usually fairly well understandable with one or two looks.

    Here's one:

    http:www.midcontinent.edu

    Mid-Continent University, Mayfield, Kentucky.
    A Southern Baptist institution, but not an arm of either the SBC or Kentucky Baptist Convention.
    A Google search will turn up additional information besides the website.

    POB,

    I did not see that Martin had supplied a link to the Baptist colleges above. Sorry for the oversight. The page I furnished, however, will give a bit of a different perspective, especially when it comes to how the schools are organized into a unit for educational purposes.

    sdg!

    I am interested in studying the faculty educational backgrounds of these schools.I have found only two of the SBC seminaries that put that info in thier catalog.

    Of the two SBC seminaries that have provided info I find that the inbreeding is not within a seminary itself but within the 6 SBC seminaries which I believe is equivelant.Of course I need to gather more data.

    I also checked out Moody a school often recommended very highly on this board and found on thier faculty folks with degrees from BJU,Covington,LBU,& a couple of other schools that are not a part of the elite school list.

    What I am looking for is to see if the elites inbreed as much as I think they do and then declare themselves to be the elite which tends to work because of two factors; one being denominational backing,the second the good old boy system,

    In addition I am trying to see where the Calvinism and liberalism is comming from in these schools.

    I have noticed some of these gentlemen have recieved some of thier education at Ivey League schools ,definitely liberal and some have recieved parts of thier education from some othewr well known liberal schools.

    POB,

    I have been quite familiar with all of the SBC Seminaries in the past. All of the profs credentials should be there. You may have "to surf" and go layers deep into the site but all should be there.

    Keep trying!

    sdg!

    POB,

    Did I understand you correctly that; if an SBC seminary has scholars from inside the "Big Six" you consider that to be "inbreeding?"

    If that is what you meant, can you defend it please?

    sdg!

    Rhet,
    I only mentioned that was my suspicion and am not prepared to state it as fact.But here is my perception so far:

    These guys all go to the same six to ten schools to get thier education and credentials and then go to teach in the same group of 6 to ten schools they graduated from. This is not necessarily bad it's just what it appears to be.Then of course they all promote these same six to ten schools which leaves them pretty tightly knit.

    The only time this is harmful is when they exclude other schools outside of thier circle as being less than valid because it is outside of thier circle.

    This is the same criticism laid at the doorstep of various IFB schools and BJU.

    The IFB seems to be a little more open. I am finding that is true of most groups though they just take umbrage when it is noticed.

    The hard part seems to be acurately looking at where degrees are from. I just opened my SBTS catalog and noticed in the school of theology, about 90% were from SBTS. But then when I actually started looking, I noticed that it wasn't how it first appeared. We had people from Cambridge, Princeton (2 or 3), Trinity, Mid-America, Baylor, Hebrew Union, Chicago and others, but that is just a survey.

    My point is, at first glance it looked like there were a ton of SBTS alum, and there are definitely plenty of SBTS alum, but there are also plenty of other diverse schools around as well.

    ETA: I just did a detailed count of the School of Theology at SBTS for 2004-2005 (the year I entered.) Of the 37 professors at that time, 12 had their final degree (PhD or DMin) from SBTS. Another 3 or so were from SWBTS, but not even half of the profs were from either SBTS or any SBC Seminary. However, when I first started looking, it looked like everybody was from here.
