Biola University is the nation’s best college for students looking to get a top-notch Bible education, according to a newly released online college-ranking guide.
The “15 Best Colleges for Studying the Bible” rankings, published in January by thebestschools.org, recognizes schools for their “commitment to sound Christian education, their vital campus life, outstanding faculty, academic excellence, and above all, their impressive Bible curriculum,” according to the website.
In placing Biola at No. 1 on the list, the website noted the university’s well-known theology and apologetics faculty, its extensive degree and course offerings at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and its integration of faith into all disciplines.
“Biola’s emphasis on the Bible and a [b]iblical worldview … is not restricted to their Bible department,” the website states. “The university is one of the world’s best at framing all of its departments within a biblical-Christian worldview.”
“Biola has been faithful to traditional Christian teachings,” Biola professor Craig Hazen told the newspapers. “We believe the Bible to be true, but are willing to make the case for it using the best methods in the academic world.”
