How scholars do research


My friend Nijay Gupta has been getting a number of established biblical scholars (so far, all NT scholars) to answer questions about how they do research on his blog CruxSola. This is proving fascinating and helpful, and there are some interesting common threads. Here are links to the ones so far from Craig Blomberg, David deSilva, Jimmy Dunn, Mike Gorman and Mike Bird. Warmly recommended to those who spend a significant amount of their lives working on research in biblical studies! I need to put my thinking cap on, as I’ve promised to write something for Nijay about this in the near future.

Nijay has also put together links to a number of his own posts on doing various aspects of research here and they’re worth reading. Also warmly recommended.
