I previously created a post titled the $3,000 question. In the post, I was trying to get advice on a next step in my doctoral studies. I was considering Trinity in Indiana and Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary. I don’t trust Trinity, so they were out. Through research, I found/heard good things about LBU. So, after much prayer, I enrolled in their DMin program with an emphasis in Leadership. I had high hopes in the program and their curriculum. Unfortunately, when I received my first three syllabi, I was greatly disappointed. Essentially, each course required reading one textbook and answering questions from the textbooks. Even the preaching course, and the exegetical theology course required only reading through the books, and only answering the end of chapter questions. I earned a ThD from Evangel Christian University of America, an unaccredited seminary. For every course that I took through their ThM and ThD programs, I had to read one main text book and read other books as part of independent research. I then had to write at least three papers for each course. For example, for a New Testament course, I had to write one 5-10 page paper over a word study, one 25 page review of the main text book, and an additional 50-75 page paper. I also had to write a 120 page dissertation. LBU/LBTS requires for the DMin that you complete a 100 page project. I guess this is just a post out of frustration because of my expectations and what actually is required. I have withdrawn from LBU/LBTS and will get back to work on writing my next book.
