John Lee
 "My philosophy background really helps me in evaluating various theological perspectives here at seminary. Also, and most importantly I think, it has helped me to better understand and relate to the moral and intellectual worldviews of the people I meet and try to share my faith with. I really do believe that I'm a better person, a better Christian, and a better minister because of my studies in philosophy."

--John Lee, graduate student, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY
