Seminary Advice pt. 5

Fifth, take teachers not classes.

Find a professor at Seminary that you love, and take everything he has to teach.

As you are skimming through the catalog, the most important piece of information is not the class title, but the teacher’s name besideĀ  the class title.

One of the ways I implemented this strategy was being conscious of the teacher’s specialties. For example, I took Dr. Pennington for NT I because he is a Gospels Scholar and I took my Dad for NT II because he is a Pauline Scholar. This also applies to Church History, Systematic Theology, Missiology, etc…

So in other words, if your favorite teacher is teaching Trees and Shrubs in the Ancient Near East, click ADD CLASS, and you won’t be disappointed.
