Lastly, if there is one piece of advice you could give to someone entering New Testament scholarship, what would it be?
Stay humble, be devoted to your wife and your family, and get involved in your local church.
Andreas Köstenberger, prof. I NT
If there is one author/theologian that you believe everyone should read, who is it?
“Maybe not everyone, but everyone with a serious interest in theology, should read some of Jürgen Moltmann’s work. As long as I’ve been reading theology, I have found his work the most stimulating and worth engaging with, even when I disagree. He has influenced my thinking a lot.
All children should read Tove Jansson’s Moomintroll books, and all parents should read them to their children.”
“There is a natural tendency for people to want small pools in which they can be big fish, but that doesn’t produce good scholarship.”
Richard Bauckham, prof. emeritus (tidigare prof i NT, St Andrews Skottland)
