SBL Forum: Student Creative Project

There is a very interesting post published in this month's SBL Forum written by James D Findlay. Titled "Student Creative Projects: Aural and Video Productions as Biblical Exegesis," this article highlights James' experience in encouraging his students to find ways "into the joyful task of creative and responsible interpretation in ways that make sense for their own lives and experiences."

Click here to read the article - it's worth reading it.

As a lecturer, I have been struggling how to give the necessary space for my students to express their creativity in exegesis classes. Perhaps I might give James' idea a try in my next semester's course on Exegesis of Romans. Who knows, we might even discover some hidden talents.
