Is the seminary/graduate school of theology turning into a conglomerate business where the job market is getting too competitive with hiring faculty due to an excessive number of trained hirees? or to put it another way... Are there too many PhD programs and such as well as not enough faculty jobs to fill the void? I am embarking on a ThM & PhD, and I feel very strong to enter this realm of ministry (teaching and writing). But it seems like there are a lot of people doing the same thing, and I can't imagine the rate of growth for institutions as well as the faculty turnover rate being comparable. Any thoughts???
