Is There a Doctor in the House? - A Review

Categories Theology Ministry

Is There a Doctor in the House Over at Near Emmaus Mark Stevens posted an excellent review of Ben Witherington's upcoming book, Is There a Doctor in the House.

You can read an excerpt below, and find the rest here.

"In honest and conversational style Ben details his own journey through the various stages to become a renowned scholar and writer. The book is easily read in a day and covers what it really takes to become a scholar (and believe me it is a hard slog).

Ben doesn’t pull any punches. He isn’t going to let you off with only your Greek. He wants you to master Hebrew, Aramaic, theological German and even French!  He discusses how to choose the right school and the right supervisor and he advocates the need to go beyond a grasp of the languages and to a well-furnished understanding of historical context (secondary literature)."
