    I have a MDiv and completed course work for M.S. in electrical enginerring (didnt finish the thesis) and have 15 years of ministry experience (a lot in the area of apologetics). Can i be qualified for DrApol program? What is your recommendation. Thanks

    • ISDET_Admin_2014 says:

      Yes, you are qualified. You will have to study some extra courses.

    • anoop says:

      i have a M. Div degree and i am interested in doing Doctorate in Apologetic s. And i also have 8 years experience in ministry. Can i apply for the above mentioned course? what is your recommendation. thank you.

  2. Christian greetings to everyone. I would like to make a follow up regarding the result of my final enrollment application in Doctor of Christian Apologetics. I sent my application last November 19, also I would like to make corrections regarding the word field that I wrongly spelled into failed in the questionnaire asking my purpose in enrolling this course, my apologies.

  3. i have submitted my application for DTH programe, when the study will start

  4. Paul Owolabi says:

    Good day. Just seeing this beautiful school for the first time.
    Just wanted to know if I can study the Doctorate in Christian Apologetics with my Bachelor (Science). I couldn’t complete my Masters programme in Parasitology due to personal challenges in my country, Nigeria. In addition, I almost 4 years plus ministry experience.

    Thanks for your reply.

  5. Phillip Beavers says:

    Since I could not see a way to enroll in the MApol (Master of Christian Apologetics) program, would it be possible to enroll in the DrApol (Doctor of Christian Apologetics) program, even without a theology-related Master’s degree (I do have a Master’s degree, just not in a theology focus). The “heavy curriculum focus” that is warned about above is not an issue for me, but I don’t know what other reasons you might have for the MTh or ThD requirements listed.

  6. Thomas Eristhee says:

    I have payed for the doctor of Christian apologetics for some time now and I am not hearing nothing from you. I have not recive not one course. I need to do the work. I want the knowledge.

  7. Daniel Koskei says:

    I thank God for ISDET and Dr Philip in particular for allowing me to study MTH.God by Grace has allowed them to reach the world with the Gospel through this Free Internet bible school.The carriculum/content is of high quality.At the end of the course i will be thoroughly equipped in the world of academia if that is what the world requires.But my greatest desire is to be knowlegeable in the word of God for His Glory and my personal spiritual benefits more than pursuing issues of certifiation or/and accreditation.

    • PAU GIN MANG says:

      I want to take this DrAPol course if it be really a free course.

      And where can I be awarded the certificate after completion?

  8. Abraham Coffie says:

    I have Diploma in Biblical Studies, Certificate in Education, 1st Degree in Technical Education, Master of Technology Education in Mechanical and Occupational Safety and Health Professional Certificates,

    Do I qualify for Doctor of Apologetic program?

    Are your programs accredited by a recognised institution?

    Thank you.

    Dear Dr. Johnson C. Philip. I have read the whole available ebooks you have in Apolgetics and other books, except the comics and other 100 plus ebooks still under expectation. And I am now eager to add Doctorate in Apolgetics to my craving programs. I have executive MBA in law management and leadership management, passed my PhD dissertation in organisational leadership in ministry, HND AND two Advance diplomas and more than eleven Diplomas. I read the ebooks from both ISDET and BTI. I really want to continue the program. I am in Cambodia.

  21. Cliff J MAASBACH says:

    hello dear sir or Dr.,

    I finished a not official postbachelor degree on a private school,
    the teachers pretty much did finish an official master degree in theology,

    can I start to finish a master degree at your institute?

    I guess my knowledge is probably even beyond that, or can you somehow test the knowledge

    soo that I maybe can do a Dr. of christian apologetics?
