Nijay Gupta posted another interview in his monograph series, this time with C. Beetham. PhD students, listen close: Beetham says:
About halfway through the program at Wheaton, my wife and I began to think through together what might be next. At that time I read somewhere that there were nearly ten PhDs for every biblical studies post in the States. Moreover, as I job surfed on the web, it seemed that every seminary or university or college I looked at mentioned that they wanted at least five years of experience in teaching, as well as a CV of written works, of which I had neither.
