John Goodrich on “What makes a good Biblical Scholar or Theologian?”

This is a good question. I think the best biblical scholars and theologians make bold propositions while being meticulous in their argumentation. At the same time, I think it is most enjoyable to read those scholars whose writing is clear and demonstrates immediate relevance for people’s lives. In other words, we should all aspire to be John Barclay.
