DM825 Doctoral Research and Writing | Knox Theological Seminary

The purpose of this course is to develop and refine skills for doctoral research and writing by means of addressing a wide range of topics and issues. Students will increase their abilities in technical matters including structure, format, style, syntax, grammar, and proper citation of sources while also refining skills in logic, biblical exegesis and hermeneutics, and the use of digital resources such as the online library holdings and Logos Bible Software. Particular attention is also given to the requirements for the Doctor of Ministry Major Project and the intersection of academic, theological, and ministerial considerations. Together, these categories work to inform and accomplish the overarching aim of this course, which is to understand how scholarly research and writing is a pastoral vehicle for declaring and demonstrating the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
