    So if we were to put the 6 seminaries on a matrix of theology, where would each fall?

    Calvinism, I would say: SBTS most reformed, SEBTS many reformed w/ a few dissenters --> all the way to SWBTS and NOBTS which seems anti-reformed.

    Maybe one I'm more aware of is NT textual studies: NOBTS then SEBTS are at the top... not sure who falls in line after that (probably SBTS then SWBTS being so close to DTS and the CSNTM)

    Where do the 6 fit into places like eschatology and ecclesiology? For that matter, which of the 6 is more academic vs. ministerial/practical vs. a healthy combo of both?

    What say you???

    FYI, I know you can't lump 1 entire school into 1 entire theological tradition. Just give a general consensus or majority view. For instance, SEBTS is all over the map in eschatology. But by and large I would say the popular view is historic premill (w/ a few Dispies and Amills)

    Also, my ulterior motive is to find out the theology of GGBTS :D

    I know a guy who went to Midwestern in Missouri for a DMIN program and came home after the first day, because all the teacher talked about was how to "make the coin" in ministry. He decided it wasn't for him.
