He was forced to drop out of school to help his dad pay bills and his mom change diapers, so the dream of busting Dillinger settled into 40 mun»

The following was originally posted on the official blog of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.  You can access it here.   Seven years ago I enrolled in George W. Truett Theolgoical Seminary.  It was a risky decision for me.  I knew little about Christianity as a whole, much less Baptist Christianity.  I was turned on to the seminary by professors at East Texas Baptist University.  Until then, I was not aware the institution existed, or wh»
