Nicholas Perrin on “What makes a good Biblical Scholar or Theologian?”

The key element to any theologian’s lasting success is the ability to approach their task with the wonder and awe of a beginner.  Humble curiosity is the lifeblood of all our teaching, research, and writing. Without it we slowly die — and worse, take our audiences down to the pit with us.
