A No-nonsense and Practical Guide to Succeeding During Seminary Studies
If you want to learn how to manage your studies and equip yourself with the tools to succeed, you'll find in this book:
PART 1: How To Prepare Your Heart, Mind, and Family
Seminary is a high-demand program both in-class and outside of class. This book will help students to prepare themselves for the intellectual challenges of seminary as well emotionally prepare the important relationships in their life.
PART 2: How To Manage Your Time and Energy
Gone are the days when seminary students could focus solely on their studies. Most students today are already in ministry while studying, working a job, and quite often have a family. In addition, the financial realities bring additional pressures to the life of a seminary student. You'll find here practical tips and suggestions to help balance your life and finances while studying.
PART 3: How To Research, Read, and Write Like a Pro
Seminary demands a lot of reading, essay writing, and library research – yet many students do not come to seminary prepared to engage in these exercises at the graduate level. In this book readers will be coached on how to read intelligently, how to build your essays upon quality research, and to write theological essays.
