I may be biased as an alumnus, but I always suggest Southern Baptists at least give this school a look. Trinity Evangelical Divinity School – Trinity is undeniably evangelical–they included the label in their name, just to be clear–but it has a (sadly) rare mix of theological orthodoxy and academic credibility.
I note this because I do not propose to offer a top five ranking of seminaries in America.
Instead, I want to tell you about five seminaries (in no particular order) that I would recommend if asked–as I often am–about which schools a prospective student should consider and why.
Duke Divinity School – If I were to rank seminaries, Duke would appear first.
In addition to what I believe is the best faculty in America–Ellen Davis, Stanley Hauerwas, Richard Hays, Grant Wacker, Lauren Winner, and Norman Wirzba, to name a few–they also have the best seminary campus and massive resources that provide nearly unparalleled enrichment opportunities to students.
