My thoughts on an ideal theological foundation for someone who has 2 years to prepare for seminary: 1. Memorising the WSC / Heidelberg catechism 2. Have a good foundation in 1 Systematic (Berkhof for me) 3. Reading the Institutes at least once 4. Understanding the CoG and sacraments 5. Memorising the biblical/redemptive narrative book by book at least. To at least know the main crux of each NT chapter / For the OT, understanding the types and shadows, to have as good an understanding of the historical narrative; characters etc. Knowing the key passages in the Psalms and Prophets. What say you all? And of course this includes touching the biblical languages a bit / reading beginner stuff on logic, philosophy, apologetic etc.
