One of the value-added distinctives of a Cedarville education is the Bible minor that is built into every undergraduate program. Made up of five courses — Bible and the Gospel, Old Testament Literature, New Testament Literature, Theology I, and Theology II — the Bible minor stretches students to think about God, His Word, and His world in whole new ways and encourages them to apply Scripture to all areas of their lives. Now, we are making this outstanding Bible teaching available to everyone through our online Bible Minor Project. Every lecture from all five courses will be recorded and, when completed, made available for free for personal enrichment, group Bible studies, and the benefit of the church.
