Seminary can be a difficult road. Danny Zacharias and I share some of our hard-earned wisdom on how to not only survive, but thrive in seminary, while maintaining your health, nurturing your family, and being involved in ministry.

Surviving and Thriving in SeminaryAbout the Book: Your years in seminary are meant to prepare you for ministry, but it can also be a very challenging time. Many students struggle with the rigorous study and the challenges to their personal and spiritual lives.

Surviving and Thriving in Seminary is designed to prepare current and future seminary students for what’s ahead. In it, two seminary professors (and former seminary students) tell you what they tell their students, and what they wish they’d known. This book aims to teach you skills that will help you thrive in the areas of your personal life, time management, and study practices. While seminary is always a rigorous experience, you can do more than survive it. You can thrive.
