Online Bible Schools
I love study. I love the Bible. And I love to study the Bible. Recently I surfed the internet for online Bible schools. Here is what I found.
Frankly speaking, there is an explosion of resources available. Numerous theological colleges have turned themselves into online Bible schools, offering all kinds of programs. Some look extremely impressive.
For example, the Fuller Theological Seminary has launched Fuller Online, offering “a high-quality, accredited theological and missional education using the powerful, flexible channel of the internet.”
The Dallas Theological Seminary says about its online Bible study courses:
DTS's online courses have the same content, credit and cost as classes taken in the traditional classroom format. This means that students taking online courses will receive the same instruction from world-class faculty, challenging assignments, and strong community experience present in the classroom.
There are many others.
Some churches provide online Bible schools. For example, check out Jordan Park Church of Christ in Alabama. It says that 25,000 students are enrolled in its internet Bible study course.
And then there are many, many para-church organizations, as well as dedicated websites, offering online Bible schools or study resources.
As an example, Bible.org has some impressive resources available free, including Easton’s Bible Dictionary and the International Standard Bible Dictionary. Also available is The Theology Program, a self-study course aimed at “equipping people and churches to understand and defend the Christian faith.”
