Reading Log

On November 11, 2009 I became a Student Member of the Society of Biblical Literature. In trying to get a grasp on my research (in the midst of family, work, preaching and teaching, as well as developing a more generative / relational ordination process for the EDWM), so that I can focus more intently on academic research in the area of New Testament theology in general and theological interpretation in particular. The PhD program I’m preparing for is entirely self motivated in the sense that there is no residential expectations. I’m trying to implement a few basic “self-motivation techniques” in order to stay more focussed upon the task at hand. In order to gain a much broader perspectives of theological research this list will contain (hopefully) everything I’m reading: books, articles, notes, book reviews, the reading and re-reading of sections / chapters in books, etc. Right now it primarily consists of books I’ve read or intend to read over the course of my PhD research. These pages are intended to let you, the reader, in on a bit of my process and progress. (This material does not include the bulk of material I’ve previously read or am reading in full. That can be found here).
