This Special Program consists of 4 Modules and includes an Old Scofield Study Bible.
Dispensational Bible Studies - Right Division (2 years)
This is a 2 module course that examines the Bible from a Dispensational point of view. Students are taught to study Scripture in context and to rightly divide between Israel and the Church.
Dr. Mike Johnston began the PMI Center for Biblical Studies in 1981 distance seminary level education to born-again, Bible believing, Christ-honoring prisoners all across America. To date, over 30,000 have taken advantage of the vast opportunities offered through our intense, doctrinally sound distance Bible and Ministry training center. Prisoners and non-prisoners are both cordially invited to begin their Bible study and ministry preparation by mailing in an application to enroll.
CAVEAT: All programs have been carefully and prayerfully structured and require completion of our NON NEGOTIABLE 8 Lesson Foundations of Theology Study Course prior to college and seminary level enrollment. All study tracks require that you read through the Bible at least one time per academic year. Each study track also includes a wide range of collateral reading assignments on relevant topics ranging from the manuscripts, fundamentalism, end times, hermeneutics, apologetics, contemporary issues, evangelism, theology, cults, and heresies.
