(Can't see the video? Watch it here)
Given these difficulties, Oliver Crisp, theology professor and co-editor of Christology, Ancient and Modern, urges students considering a career in the academy to “weigh up your choices.”
“Think carefully about the institution, think carefully about the person you’re going to be studying with, as well as the topic.”
He shares from his own story some clear decisions he made when he was starting out to illustrate why this advice is important.
I know how important this advice was four years ago for a friend of mine working toward a Ph.D. in New Testament studies. So listen to Crisp’s advice to help you make the best choices that will give you the best opportunity to succeed after years of study.
