"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth." 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Bachelor of Biblical Studies
The Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies degree requires 120 semester hours.
NWBI equates one semester hour to 16 hours of study, so it will take a minimum of 1,920 clock hours to complete this course.
The lecturer for our Biblical Studies curriculum is Dr. Bob Utley, a retired professor of Hermeneutics. Dr. Utley has made his lectures available for free in audio and video formats at his website, www.freebiblecommentary.org. He also offers a free CD of his teachings. Dr. Utley has a very down to earth style, yet teaches the deep things of the Scriptures. We think that you will enjoy studying under this man of God.
This program uses Dr.Warren Wiersbe's highly-acclaimed "Be" Series for a practical view of the Biblical text. Like Dr. Utley, Dr. Wiersbe is a very well respected Bible scholar with a down to earth style that's easy to read. We believe that you will enjoy studying with him as well. Dr. Wiersbe's entire series - covering the entire Bible - can be purchased from various sources in individual books or as a package. Please shop around for the best prices.
Of course, the Bible itself is our textbook, with the Holy Spirit as the teacher. Dr. Utley's theological teaching and Dr. Wiersbe's practical Christian applications make this degree program second to no other. You will be astonished at the quality of this free degree program.
