Although there still are many traditional schools available to you--if that is your persuasion--it is not necessarily your parents' seminary any more. This is because seminary education has evolved like everything else with the changing culture in North America. Seminaries in the twenty-first century differ in many ways from seminaries of the twentieth-century--which is one reason why a guide to seminary is now necessary.

A Help for Choosing and Attending Seminary  Nov 12, 2008
What's great about this book is the sheer breadth of topics Derek covers. He begins with the basic question about whether or not someone should attend seminary in the first place, and walks readers right through the process to the point that he suggests possible professions and career paths.

While this book will undoubtedly help Christians decide whether or not seminary is the right choice or which seminary is the right fit (denominationally, theologically, etc.), it seems that Derek has left no stone unturned by providing guidance through seminary classes and other issues that will come up while attending seminary. He doesn't just provide insight into step A, but rather goes from A-Z with his ideas, check lists, and questions.

If you really are considering seminary, then you will find this book an engaging read. Derek has made this topic as compelling as any human being possibly could, while the designers have done an amazing job pulling key quotes, inserting charts and graphs, and breaking down ideas into lists. Each appendix at the end is a gold mine of information.
