Sometimes you just need four concise points to deliver a compelling message. Paul Sloan does that for us in this week’s edition of “What makes a good biblical scholar or theologian?”

“Fascination with the project” – if you’re not interested in the topic you’re researching, you’ll burn out.

“Purposeful reading” – i.e. aimless reading won’t stick.

“Flesh and blood conversation partners” – i.e. having someone you can talk to about your ideas is essential both for processing information and conjuring continued love of the work.
