The DTh program at South Africa Theological Seminary has morphed into a PhD in theology program. I understand the marketing impulse but I like the straightforwardness of the DTh nomenclature. There are too many PhDs out there and not enough true DThs. ~ link

Hi Brad,

Regarding the Twitter quote about stimulating the economy by paying off personal debt: Were you serious? I am not an economist, but Krugman and others say our immediate economic problem is shortage of demand. They point out that the recent increase in U.S. government debt just replaces a simultaneous reduction in other intra-U.S. debt. The paradox is that paying down debt tends to impede economic recovery at this time.
