Interview with Larry Hurtado

My favorite quote:

Commit yourself also to fair and self-critical engagement with scholarship.  My PhD supervisor (E. J. Epp) insisted on one rule above all others, and I re-affirm it:  Make sure that you accurately represent the views of others, especially those with whom you disagree.  Cheap polemics are of no value to anyone.  The NT texts and the scholarship on them will require the most conscientious self-discipline of mind and spirit, and the honing of critical and expressive abilities.  But I think these texts are worth the effort!
