    Duane,

    Thanks for this…as you know this topic weighs heavily on my mind.
    When I started to seek orders in the Anglican church I found a whole category that I had never been exposed to.
    It was like starting my theological education all over again.
    It was and is daunting at my age…but it is also exciting and life giving.
    There is no shortcut to learning and wisdom takes longer…

    Many thanks… It truly is a life-long journey and all of us, in one way or another, are on that road.

    I miss both taking classes and teaching classes… the teacher almost always learns as much as the student.

    Oh, I would love to teach in a bible college / seminary setting some day. Maybe when I retire from my day job.

    But the research is what I miss most. Taking in and synthesizing a large swath of information on a particular subject is just so helpful. I still do it on a much smaller level, but without the discipline of a grade / degree / certificate hanging in the balance, I definitely reduce the amount of pain involved.

    I even grew to enjoy Turabian.

    Of a review of literature and research can help one calculate the Erdos-Bacon-Sabbath number of an individual. Google the term and you see how it is calculated.

    This article almost makes me want to return to school to study theology! I was chosen by my Humanities professor as “Student of the Year” and he tried convince me to major in Humanities . I was just a sophmore at San Diego State University. I remember asking him, ” What would I ever do with a Humanities degree?” I ended up majoring in Liberal Studies which was required in order to enter the one-year graduate program in Elementary Education. I had to choose an “emphasis” and I chose Social Sciences thinking it would help me later as a teacher. Here is a fascinating fact. As a freshman I took a course at SDSU that was called ‘The Old Testament’. I liked it so much I took the second 3 unit class called ‘The New Testament’ . I was not a Christian when I took these classes which were both taught by a Jewish scholar from Israel. At the end of the last class everyone wanted to know if the Jewish professor thought Jesus was the promised Messiah foretold of in the Old Testament. To my surprise and astonishment he said, “Yes, I believe that Jesus is the Messiah.”. I didn’ realise it then, but he must have been part of ‘The Jews for Jesus’ camp! I was raised in a non Christian home, but I knew that Jewish people weren’t supposed to believe that Jesus was the chosen Messiah of God. That was the beginning of my conversion experience! Six months after taking those classes I met a wonderful friend from Campus Crusade for Christ ( she’s still a close friend) and she led me to Christ. Who says that going to college will destroy your Christian faith? In my case my secular public university led me to Christ within one year! God can reach us wherever we are – we don’t have to fear the world as much as many Christians seem to think we should. My experience proves this to be true.
