Two articles on (theological) education ...
As a believer in seminaries, as a frequent guest lecturer at seminaries, as a past-and-current board member of seminaries, as a believer that more and better theological education is better (!) than less and worse, and as someone who didn't attend seminary myself but has two honorary doctorates and who has a pro-seminary bias, I found these two articles fascinating - both in their similarities and differences.
This one on seminaries: http://chronicle.com/article/For-Schools-of-Theology-Its/131851/
This one on do-it-yourself learning: http://radar.oreilly.com/2012/05/schoolers-edupunks-makers-learning.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+oreilly%2Fradar%2Fatom+%28O%27Reilly+Radar%29
All this raises a question I'll post over on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Brian-D-McLaren/65814657989?ref=ts
