    So my brother will be in Afghanistan until January of 2013 and he figures he'll use some of his time there to do some online Bible classes. Of course the military won't pay for him to do this so it needs to be lower cost or free. He said that he wants to take something like OT/NT history, apologetics, systematic theology (those were the ones he mentioned to me). So any ideas that I can pass on to him? Thanks!

    I see a lot of people throw out "Nation's University" here as it is free. They offer degrees but not yet accredited. It's run by the UCC. I thought Charles Stanley's website offered a ton of Bible studies on his site. Nothing formal, but good Bible studies.

    But the military will pay! I recieved my undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies from Liberty University entirely through tuition assistance from the military. I never paid a single dime in lab fees, books or tuition. As long as it is accredited, the military will pay for it. I am now pursuing my Masters through Liberty using the Post 9/11 GI Bill and have no out of pocket expenses.

    Carpenter is right, I also received the G.I. Bill. It can be used for a variety of degrees including Bible. Mine helped me get my degree.

    I do not recommend Liberty always, even though it is my alma mater, but veterans or active duty personnel receive a generous discount.

    Most of my other recommendation would be more reformed in nature, but since it seems this is not the direction he wishes to head, I will refrain from those recommendations.

    OK - Sorry, I need to clarify - He got his undergrad and masters through Liberty through the military and unless he goes for his doctorate, they won't pay and he's just looking for some Bible classes. :)

    If I were to recommend a solid Calvinistic school that is unaccredited, I would recommend TNARS (The North American Reformed Seminary). You can find them here:

    http://www.tnars.net/

    I have recommended this school to several people, each speak favorably of their experience at this school. However, they expect that you will complete the degree program you begin.

    How about just for some classes?

    If you do not mind not being a college, try Founder's online study center. Also, I know that the producers of the Free Grace Broadcaster has a study center/seminary. I do not know much about it, but they produce great stuff online and in print.

    http://www.chapellibrary.org/broadcaster/

    Hope you enjoy.
