    One man's opinion...................

    The school appears to be a two man operation. The problem is that the courses seem to be incomplete and not fully developed for online study. Also, lectures are all text which is little better than reading a textbook. The courses lean heavily on textbook reading too. What's the difference between reading the textbook and reading the lectures? The essay questions seem trite and not very well thought out. There appears to be some bias in the wording of the essay questions. Although the teachers seem to have knowledge and skills, the effort appears too big and ambitious for just two men. On the other hand, I do think it is a serious attempt to produce a credible school. The price, however, is very reasonable.

    eh, webpage is horrible...

    well I echo the above comments. Doesn't seem too indepth. Maybe good for a lay person locally. Their "journal of theology" isn't very good either.

    Looks fake. I dunno, just some observations.

    The website looks a little weak, but it has many strong points. The profs have actual degrees and are members of the Society of Biblical Literature, which only admits earned PhD's or seminary students. They offer each course for free, but without a grade, and they do not offer any degree, only a certificate. They admit to being unaccredited, and there might be difficulty transferring any of thier work to another institution. There are a lot of "fake" institutions that are not so upfront about the status of the institution. It seems like a straight forward operation trying to instill Biblical knowledge to people.
