    Why eLearning?

    "E-Learning Saves Time & Travel: Travel time is saved. Your physical presence to attend a classroom lecture is avoided." [1]

    The benefit of taking Bible classes online is that it allows the flexibility of learning the Bible at a convenient time and place suitable for individuals. Being in a comfortable environment (such as at home) and being able to read alone may bring the individual closer to God. For this reason, a degree program such as one in Bible Study and Hermeneutics may suit you well.

    Note: The Internet contains several online Bible Study and Hermeneutics courses and degrees, so, when deciding on what school to go with, pay close attention to its accreditation and/or affiliation(s).
