92 ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
~~. . . . .
SCOPE OF WORK.
The College of the Bible is maintained in addition to the
regular Bible department of the College of Arts and Sciences
(see pages 52 to 56) in order to provide additional and special
training for those who desire to give more time to preparation
for Christian service, both public and private. For, while
all students of the institution are required to pursue courses
in the English Bible, there are many who are preparing for
special service and who desire and need the courses herein offered,
many of which can not be accredited toward a degree
in liberal arts.
The courses given in the College of the Bible will, by comparison,
appear to be equal to, and in some cases superior to,
those offered in the seminaries and schools of theology in the
land. From the point of view of scholarship they measure
up to the highest standard.
WHERE THE EMPHASIS LIES.
In offering this special work the emphasis is not placed
on the various theories of theology in its many forms. These

management believes that the efficiency of Christian workers,
whether public or private, is dependent upon their knowledge
and understanding of the word of God-the Holy Scripturesand
not upon their familiarity with the great mass of literature
that has been written about the Bible. For this reason all
courses are taught with particular regard for the Scriptures
as final authority in all matter pertaining to God.
CERTIFICATES AND DIPLOMAS.
Professionalism is not encouraged in any way whatever.
The management of this school tries to hold up noble ideals
of scholarship and character. The students who finish courses
outlined below receive certificates and diplomas indicating
the mark of classical distinction in scholarship the student has
obtained. The records kept of the work and grades of the students
will, with the outlines of the courses, assure the students
the credit they deserve should they go elsewhere after being
