Do you wish you had a couple other (dissertation) writers to check in on your daily progress and to share tips about overcoming challenges and increasing productivity? Do you know of someone who does?

Join a small, low-key (i.e. for free) Academic Ladder-like support group that has space for a couple of new members--one member just submitted. (Send me a message for details or to test it out for a week.)

"A bomb expert prepares to force open a briefcase that was abandoned at the busy GPO bus stage in Nairobi July 26, 2012. There were fears that it contained a bomb." How's that for guts!?!

Dear Friends,. I was on the third floor of our house a few weeks ago, talking on the phone, when I noticed a small hole in the wall over my desk. I didn't think much of it until a few hours later,...

The biblical studies portion of my time at WTS was life changing. The other half of my time was mostly a waste of time and effort--minutia about Presbyterian polity and narrow fundamentalist theology. I haven't touched notes from any of those classes since. Now the more fundamentalist Reformed administration has systematically purged all the phenomenal biblical studies faculty that breathed such wonderful life into the institution: Stephen Taylor, Dan McCartney, Peter Enns, Chris Fantuzzo, and now Doug Green--all gone!
