For those of you who are considering education to further your skills and knowledge, but have limited money, try the South African Theological Seminary (I will try to find the link for you.) It is a conservative Bible believing seminary that is small, but its courses are difficult and not designed for those who do not have motivation to study without supervision. Because of the exchange rate differences, the cost is extremely cost effective...approximately $7 or $8 dollars per credit hour. I took an entire overview of the Old Testament (23 credit hours) for less than $200 not including the books that I found used on ebay and amazon (four books required). The college teaches KJV only, but does not dwell on the subject, so it is really not an issue, except that you are required to do your studies with the KJV, which I don't find to be a problem. Their beliefs all seem to be very close to Baptist and you will enjoy their assignments. For instance, one assignment was to write a letter as if you are David writing to Bathsheba about your life. By giving different perspectives on subjects you tend to do a lot of thinking. I have learned more about the Old Testament in the last year than I ever would without the course. Does anybody else have any experience with this school? It appears to be affiliated with the University of South Africa. Most of the assignments are in essay form and you will have to find a mentor (another preacher--if you are one) your regular preacher will do if you are not. He will be sent the final class tests and supervise your testing and mail it for you, certifying that you did the work on your own. Besides that, most of the grading is based on essays and if you are good at writing you can do well. I don't know how highly rated the degrees are, but I do know that I am learning a LOT based on the good books used as course materials which require a lot of research. That's why I am taking it anyway, besides, it is all I can afford.
