In the past, going to school usually required a major life change—quitting your job, moving across the country, uprooting your family, and sometimes even significant financial difficulty.

The decision to undertake theological and biblical education at a college or seminary is an important calling. Many are still called to make it.

But the reality is, for many, the difficulty of going back to school has put quality theological education out of reach.

Technology is helping to change that by making quality education more accessible and more affordable than ever before.

As schools have moved some courses online, they have urged us to provide quality resources for them. Out of these conversations, we have begun to develop online courses.

But the courses we are developing are not just for schools. They are for everyone.

With the launch of Zondervan Academic Online Courses, we are opening up these courses directly to anyone who wants to take them.

This makes quality theological education more accessible and more affordable than ever.
