Finally, you get lifetime access to our program materials. You can come back and review or download program materials at any time.
Textbooks, and Optional Lecture Videos
All bachelor's programs require the purchase of a textbook through Amazon. These texts are used in the classroom of some of the most well regarded Bible Colleges and Seminaries nationwide.
Several of these texts are offered as Kindle downloads. Students can read them on their smart-phone, and even make annotations. Annotations can be accessed via smart phone, or desktop (preferred).
Optional lecture videos are offered with some courses (requires additional purchase). These are created by the textbook authors themselves. In these videos, the author clearly points out concepts and ideas that are important to him, based on his qualified experience. If you have the time, it's worth the dime.
Almost all of our quizzes and exams are taken DIRECTLY from the publisher and author. Our quizzes and exams authentically represent what publishers and authors intend for students to learn.
In each course, every chapter has a 10 question quiz. Quiz questions are compiled into exams to reinforce greater comprehension and retention of critical points found in the author's text.
Students WILL broadly comprehend the text based on this type of reinforcement.
We do not burden students with "busy work". Instead we focus students on the minds of our selected authors so that students are fully versed in the ideology and methods of these great scholars of God.
There are many outstanding Bible colleges and seminaries--Liberty, Moody, Trinity, Talbot., BIOLA, Westminster, Fuller, Claremont, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and many more. Our graduates are no less equipped than they.
However, our graduates enjoy benefits not offered by our competition.
- We focus on time-tested texts by renowned conservative authors, who are widely accepted and predominant in their fields of study.
- We do not require interaction with a professor at a predetermined time each week
- While each lesson must be completed within each week, students are permitted to login on their own schedule to complete quizzes and exams.
- Students learn more, in less time, than with lecture based teaching
- Courses are focused on texts, quizzes and exams, not busy work
- Courses are developed specifically for online study--they are not adaptations of a classroom environment
- Books are purchased directly through Amazon, ensuring the lowest cost possible
