Wycliffe Ranked Highly in Survey of North American Seminaries
Thursday November 4th, 2010
Wycliffe College has been ranked fourth in a survey of North American seminaries included in a recent article in the respected journal First Things. In a contribution to its November issue by R. R. Reno, entitled “Schools of Thought”.
In his section on Wycliffe Reno says:
"Fourth on my list is Wycliffe College, an Anglican institution that is part of the Toronto School of Theology, a consortium of programs affiliated with the University of Toronto. Developed under the leadership of George Sumner, Wycliffe shares with Duke a strong post-liberal corporate personality. Joseph Mangina is an astute interpreter of Karl Barth, and Ephraim Radner has articulated one of the most compelling and richly theological accounts of the Christian experience of modernity. Chris Seitz approaches biblical scholarship with theological depth and penetration.
You need not be Anglican to study at Wycliffe. In fact, many of the doctoral students are evangelicals of various stripes. Yet I think it is fair to say that graduate study at Wycliffe has a churchy, pious atmosphere. It’s a place where St. Bonaventure’s warning is heeded."
