John Hendryx of Reformation Theology writes:

No Time for Seminary? Here is some sound advice for studying theology at home. Due to the compromising theological climate at many modern seminaries, we believe that if you take the time to carefully read the following materials you will get a better theological education than 90% of seminary graduates.

What following materials is Hendryx referring to you might ask?  Monergism has created theology “bundles” which can be purchased together where you would save around 25% off the books you purchase.  These bundles carry excellent books, and if you are new to theology, be sure to check out the “Theology 101 Bundle.”   Such resources are wonderful fuel to drive blue collar theology both in the local church and in the home.  I am grateful that these such curriculum is being made available at an affordable price so that more and more of God’s people can cultivate a passion for sound, biblical theology.  Here’s the curricula:
