Faith commitments. Critical scholarship. University vs. seminary. PhD programs. British and American Universities. Jobs. The ‘politics’ of institutions. Publications. Ministry. Money (and debt). Family. Time.
These are some of the main categories of issues that many face when journeying in academic biblical studies. I have experienced both American and British PhD programs, denominational seminary and prestigious university, landing scholarships, job applications and interviews, working in the UK and USA, leaving an academic job, publishing in ‘top tier’ publications, the ‘ministry vs. academy’ dichotomy, etc.
In this podcast series, I plan to talk openly about these issues—the struggles, the decisions, strategies, and the successes. I will also be inviting other experts onto the podcast to help.
Whether you are new to academic biblical studies or a seasoned veteran, I hope you will listen and consider participating!
