“What books should I read before I come to seminary?”

That’s a great question prospective and future seminary students often ask us at RTS. The most important answer is: The Bible! God’s holy, inspired, profitable, inerrant and infallible Word. And it would be wise to have a plan for doing that. As we talk to theological educators all over the country and world, we find that more and more seminary students are embarking on theological studies with less Bible knowledge than seminarians had in the past. So aim to be a lifelong student of the Bible.
