APPRENTICESHIP IN BIBLICAL ANTHROPOLOGY.  This program is designed to give you an intensive education in the culture and history of the Bible.  Students have the opportunity to study with a scholar in the field through master/apprentice style educational platform.  A journeyman certificate can be obtained in as little as six months, with opportunities for more advanced study in the master classes.  I am very excited to be developing this program which will be ideal for the Sunday School teacher, students of the Bible, ministers, chaplains, and anyone interested in the subject.  Check back often for updates.
