Alan Garrow on “What Makes a Good Biblical Scholar?”

If I had to pick a word it would be “imagination.”

We work in a field where there are a huge number of unknowns and lots of ways of approaching a given problem.

To stop ourselves banging our heads against the same walls in the same way we need imagination to keep finding new ways of approaching at old questions.

~Alan Garrow, SIIBS, University of Sheffield
