I came to a couple of realisations yesterday:
1) The two essays that I have put the most work into in my entire life have been the two essays that I have done the worst in – Doctrine year 2 and Doctrine year 3. When the mark you get in a subject’s essays is consistently two grades below your average, you know you suck at it.
2) Talking to a member of our Doctrine staff about Masters and Doctorates, he described them as “50,000 word book reviews” of a previous theologian. Ironic, considering my previous post.
I guess I’m having difficulties with the whole concept of scholarly theology. Of course, that means that I have nothing to blog on any more.
