One of the main struggles for seminarians is doing theological research. This struggle is even more real if one's undergraduate degree is in the fields of science, technology or engineering. I recall one senior engineer, who took my class on New Testament Theology some years ago, gave me his answer in the final exam in mathematical equation formula. I can't remember the exact details but it went something like this:
Kingdom of God = Teaching + Preaching of Jesus = inaugurated eschatology.
As such, I am excited to note that Robert W. Pazmiño has released his latest book on Doing Theological Research: An Introductory Guide for Survival in Theological Education. published by Wipf and Stock. This book is described as follows:
"This concise introductory work explores the essentials of doing theological research and writing. It is a handy companion to assist persons as they begin and pursue theological education. It provides an overview of expectations that both various professors have shared and students have reported over many years as basic wisdom to foster quality theological work. It is a time-tested resource to guide those called to seminary study."
I believe this book should be a necessary addition to the library of all theological students. It could serve as a needful companion to help seminarians navigate through the maze of doing theological research.
