How difficult is it to get one of these Doctor of Divinity degrees. I used to think these were fairly serious degrees, but I’ve seen a number of people with these ministerial type degrees from various bible and faith based colleges that, in my business interactions with them (buying and leasing churches or land for churches), do not write or speak all that well. I’m talking talking mangled syntax and barely high school level (or worse) writing skills. Not what you’d expect from a typical PHD.
And those guys have* doctorates.*
I’ve heard many medical doctors do not write all that well, but with ministers you’d expect that skill to be front and center.
What’s up with these doctorate degrees? Are they the real thing or a joke?
