After retiring from teaching, Tom Maddux got his M.A. in Christian Apologetics from the school of Professional Studies at Biola University. He is now an on-line instructor for the Reasons Institute, an arm of Dr. Hugh Ross's Reasons to Believe. Tom says, "The class, called 'World Religions and Science', surveys the major world religions and compares their truth claims with the scientific evidence. It is currently offered in an undergraduate version through Northern California Bible College; Hope International University offers a graduate level version. Both contract with the Reasons Institute to provide the instruction. I do the on-line instruction for both. The students are also required to listen to MP3 lectures, watch instructional DVD's, read several books, and then write several papers and reports."
