Seminary Ramblings

Updates from life at seminary

Two puzzling thoughts.

1. Upon inspection, it is incredible how many major evangelical seminaries have little to no Church History departments whatsoever. Some very large evangelical seminaries seem to have as many as 15 biblical studies professors, with only 1 adjunct person with any sort of specialization in history. The historians need to make their relevance felt once again. (on the positive side, some of the old mainline institutions like Yale Divinity and Princeton Seminary still have a plethora of profs. in history land)

2. When evangelical institutions do have Church History/Historical Theology professors, why does it seem like every one and their sister specializes in either American Religious History or the ever-so-related field of Jonathan Edwards studies???

Feel the angst.
