Why Being a Woman in Seminary is Worth the Work

Over at CT, is an encouraging article by Marybeth Davis Baggett on Why Being a Woman in Seminary is Worth the Work, basically outlining why women should go to seminary, what they can get out of it, and how they can be enriched by it.

Loved her conclusion:

Christian women—no less than men—are legatees of this philosophically and theologically profound heritage, one that marks out orthodox boundaries and models a time-tested, trustworthy method for biblical interpretation and cultural engagement. We Christian women should drink deep from that well. We should immerse ourselves in its refreshing and spirit-filled waters. We should know its taste intimately, so that when we’re offered a sip from an untested spring, we can discern if it’s bitter or sweet.
