Thank you for having been about to ask…

The College at Southeastern is coming along very nicely, and receiving good reviews from the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index (FSP). Thank you for having been about to ask.

The FSP measures, as you might have guessed, scholarly productivity. Aptly named index, that. And they have ranked Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary #3 among theological schools in the United States. We find ourselves just a bit behind Westminster Theological Seminary and Union Theological Seminary. (There is a nasty little rumor that the college Dean’s lack of scholarly productivity is the only thing keeping Southeastern from the #1 slot.)

The FSP focuses specifically on the productivity of faculty members teaching in the Ph.D. program, but the great thing about our professors is that they teach across all levels of the curriculum.

But the point is this: if you send your students or children to study with us, they will have an opportunity to study under a fine faculty, a faculty that is faithful to the gospel and who excel in their disciplines. Here is a selection of the books, authored by Southeastern professors, that are scheduled to be published within the next year or so:
