Show Summary Details


This chapter proposes a threefold definition of scholarship that includes analytic, strategic, and empathic modes of reflection. It also underscores the place of ethics, academic etiquette, personal motivation, and vocation in the life of any scholar. These multiple dimensions of scholarship need to be understood before one attempts to map the even more complex terrain of Christian scholarship.

Keywords: analytic; empathic; ethics; etiquette; motivation; scholarship; strategic; vocation
