      Student Reviews and Ratings for The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

      Overall Rating:

      Overall Rating:

      I began to look at this place as a student. I realized that because of how they treated a friend of mine that they don’t believe in reconciliation. They don’t truly believe in the Word of God. When this friend sent the emails to get through to resolve the issue the school ignored them. My advice to Al Mohler and his staff, if you believe in the election doctrine then you need to look at are you saved? Are you saved because you can’t have grace and bring reconciliation to situations that have happened when people like Jeremy Pierre claims to have talked to the former student? Do you think that you all are above reproach and you don’t apply the Word? It’s not worth the time when you claim to be a part of the SBC. Al Mohler you need to get involved and speak with the student who had the issue that no one can tell about a supposed behavior that supposedly went on.Keep in mind one might consider it discrimination. You talk about reconciliation and mending relationships with racism in it. However you people don’t believe in reconciliation. Therefore, I would be careful because Christians and non Christians are watching. And eventually you could have a law suit against people on your staff if not the institution as a whole.

      Stopped at Edgar's Emporium on my way through the area. They offer a great variety of fountain pen related products as well as shaving supplies, ties, and teas. I hope to stop by again in the future. As for the campus, it is beautiful and not too busy in the summer.

      Unmatched academic excellence from the undergraduate level to the doctoral level. The best faculty in the world and an amazing atmosphere. Beautiful campus, kind-hearted people, friendly staff. Most of the businesses are closed on Sunday, so plan accordingly. The library is a must visit.
