  • The Introduction to Theological Bibliography and Research: The Past, Present, and Future of a Genre

    by John Weaver

    The works of Barber/Krauss, Bollier/Stewart, Pazmino, and Yaghjian, are among the more recent examples of introductions to theological bibliography and research. Although diverse in their particular features, these works bear a resemblance to each other in the ways that they introduce their audiences to theological reading, research, and writing. This conversation group will discuss what are the most helpful books in this genre (not limited to the examples listed above), identifying both enduring strengths, and also needed improvements or new options within the changing contexts of religious and theological studies.
