Topics Available For Research

jars-111491_640ISDET expects every student, from bachelors up to doctoral level, to take up a research project and submit a thesis. The scope, depth, and length of the thesis varies with the program. More details of the way it should be done is given in the Admission/Student Handbook.

Please keep in mind that the purpose of the tuition-free ISDET courses is not to produce theological degree-holders but to develop Christian communicators, leaders, and ideologues for the church. Therefore  ISDET expects students to pick up practical and useful topics for research so that the thesis they submit is of use to others. Each thesis should, preferably, be on a topic that can be used as a textbook by others. Exotic topics, which are of no immediate relevance to the church, are not encouraged.

    Thank God and you for making this known to me. I wish you the best and happy New Year. I am so delighted to find this and especailly to us in the developing countries. Only God alone will replenish your effort.

    I would like to do my research in Israel’s Ancient Enemies / cultures / people groups.
    I have done preliminary work in this are, but there is much left to explore and investigate. That is if i am accepted into the doctorate in Biblical Archeology program.
    I literally just completed my degree in Masters in Biblical Archeology with a school much like this one. The president of which is Dr Johnson C. Philip in India. I have known him for many years and even wrote a few courses for him in selected subjects concurrent to my dissertation research.
    I also wanted you to know that I am a severely disabled veteran with memory problems and spinal cord difficulties that sometimes limit my academic endeavors. That just means there are days when I cannot study, research, or write very much at all – sometimes none. I work better with printed materials because i can highlight, dog ear pages, and make notes as I read. For digital mediums I can still accomplish the work, it just takes a little longer and and more physical effort. I don’t mind putting in the effort. The root of this endeavor goes back to 1990 when i was studying at the University of Cairo West and doing field work and studies in Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Iraq, Germany and Italy. I also was fortunate enough to gain private entrance to museums in London, Berlin, Cairo, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to name a few. I was in the military at the time and travel was easily available. I served in two theaters in the desert in two different eras. Anyway, I do hope i am accepted and we can take this adventure together.

    Please sens a copy of BTH to, as I have lost mine.

    Praise the Lord,

    We have been very happy to get your Bible College information on internet about how you are really working, so it’s really makes us feel very pleased and it’s why we’ve taken this opportunity to write to you.

    We’re Naivera Apostolic Church, and we’re Congolese refugees we are in Tanzania especially in Nyarugusu camp Kasulu Kigoma region.

    The camp has more than 100.000 people and also has more than 100 churchs in it.

    Regarding the interest of people to learn the word of the Lord, we decided to open the Bible school, but those getting diplomas from our Bible school are so many but still haven’t got any opportunity to carry on with their studies due to the lack of Bible college here in the camp.

    For that reason, we would humbly come to you asking for PARTNERSHIP with your Bible college, so that those who’re getting their diplomas should go ahead with their studies.

    We have every confidence that you’ll answer our request.

    On behalf of the Naivera Apostolic Church,
    Bishop, Dr. Benjamin Elunga W’Elunga

  14. Thank you so much for supporting the less privilege. God bless all the stakeholders who are making this possible for the word of God to spread

  15. Ademuyiwa Emmanuel Ifeoluwa says:
