Kairos Joins the Digital Theological Library

As the Kairos Project continues to expand around the world, we are always looking for ways to continue making the journey of discipleship affordable, accessible, relevant, and faithful.  Today, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership that will greatly enhance the quality and accessibility of theological resources for those engaged in Kairos.

The Kairos Project is now a co-owner of the Digital Theological Library (DTL), “a co-owned, born-digital library of religious and theological studies.”  Launched by the Claremont School of Theology, the DTL now counts among its co-owners Gordon Conwell, Missio Seminary, Denver Seminary, and Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (and several others).  The mission of the DTL is to provide its co-owning institutions with the highest quality digital resources in religious and theological studies at the lowest possible costs.”

New ThD Program Integrates Research and Practice

Over the past few weeks, we have been talking about a new future that creates a first-of-its kind system of theological education in North America, an affordable, accessible, relevant, and faithful undergraduate degree that is responding to the needs of others, and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy that is the only COAMFTE accredited program in the United States that integrates psychology and theology. Today, we describe an exciting new Doctor of Theology (ThD) that is now available through the Kairos Project.
 
In this doctoral program, students will inegrate research and practice in some exciting ways. It is made possible by the fact that Evangelical Seminary is now part of the Kairos Project.
