Sheffield To Close Biblical Studies

Over at Jim West’s blog the news was broken that the University of Sheffield has plans to close their undergrad Department of Biblical Studies. If they go through with this it would be a complete shame. This is the only undergraduate program in Biblical studies in the UK. The amount of scholarship that comes out of that department is immense. I don’t see why they would consider shutting the doors on it.

Jim has suggested that we all write to the Vice-Chancellor to let him know what we think about this. I am about to do so and I hope you will too. All new information is apparently being gathered by Jim under this post. Be sure to check back there to see what happens.
