From "Christians should evaluate philosophy by biblical criteria. This will shed greater light on the developments in the history of philosophy and better prepare us for the intellectual challenges of our time. The fall of Adam brought intellectual as well as moral corruption on the human race, and the effects of the fall can be seen in the work of philosophers, most of whom try to understand the world autonomously through reasoning apart from God's revelation. Some philosophers have appealed to God's revelation, but their work has often been compromised with the wisdom of the world. Revelation should inform reason, and not the other way round. In the past, even Christian theology was corrupted by the movement toward intellectual autonomy, creating the tradition of liberalism, which has unhappily dominated academic theology down to the present day. But there is hope a new generation of Christian thinkers take God's Word seriously. Frame's unique new contribution augments that process."

Eden Theological Seminary - Progressive Pastoral Preparation

by Rev. Tony Clark
(Richmond, CA, USA)

I chose Eden because of its reputation for training progressive pastors; I found that Eden was well rounded and that graduates are not just pastors, but secular non-profit, political, and denominational leaders as well as hospice, hospital and military chaplains.

The emphasis on field education, with higher requirements than other seminaries, means that your academic work is fully integrated with the practice of ministry at a variety of settings.

The diversity of denominations represented in the student body and the faculty means your experiences are always being expanded beyond your own, which is key to serving as a faith leader in today's multicultural, global world.

The region has much to explore with world class art museums, a huge outdoor theatre, city parks, universities, a light rail system, and beautiful rivers, woods and national forests within a few hours drive. Centrally located in the St. Louis area, it us also centrally situated between Midwest and the South, offering a progressive theological education to the Central US and the world.
