Bethany Theological Seminary Reviews
Bethany Theological Seminary is a small Brethren seminary that shares space, faculty, resources, and students with Earlham School of Religion (Quaker). Both are side-by-side, focused on theology, peace and nonviolence. A few times a week, we share a common meal together and a Peace Forum luncheon - students, faculty and administration - where we are present for each other and just get to be together, enjoying fellowship, conversation and stories. We also share chapel services where our spirits our fed and nourished in sometimes unorthodox and surprising ways. We are a close-knit community that shares a wonderful library, Lilly, with the Earlham College undergraduate community. We do not have a lot of the resources and options of larger schools, but we have heart, presence, progressive classes and stimulating professors, and a deep sense of community. Indeed, community, togetherness, is as part of the seminary experience here as are the classes. With all said, Bethany and Earlham offer a holistic learning and growing experience that integrates academic, community, spirit and experiential.
