So you are thinking about a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies?

I thought it would be interesting to rehash my academic journey in this blog.  Interesting, I hope, to bibliobloggers and biblioblog readers who might be considering Ph.D. work, perhaps you can learn from some of my many mistakes, and it might be interesting to those who would like to get a glimpse of how different learning environments operate and the effect they had on my own education.  But more importantly, and much more to the point, it will be a good process of self reflection, of where I have been to where I am now.

So to put out a real rough outline, I'll start with when I first noticed that I really enjoyed learning, and what motivated me then, to my experiences at University, to my decision to go to seminary, to my choice of Grad Schools, and what was going on each step of the way.  It should be a fun romp down memory lane.  I hope you enjoy!

As a current grad student in biblical studies I am very interested in what you have to say on this subject.

Tut tut - what did they teach you at Sheffield? ;-)

Scott: Hope it is not just boring drab!

steph: I have to take full credit for my ineptitude, I also have a strange penchant for putting an "in" before "which".
