About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

About 20 years ago, one of my classmates asked me, “Why are you in seminary?”

I was in a seminary class comprised mostly of pastors who had been in ministry for years or even decades and others who were training to potentially become pastors. I fit neither of those scenarios. I may have even been the only female in the class, but I honestly don’t remember. I was the epitome of the Sesame Street song, “One of These Things is Not Like the Others,” so it was difficult to not notice my presence.

As I was reading through Kibbe’s book and reflecting upon theological writing, I thought it might be helpful to make public some of the things that I tell my classes about writing within biblical and theological studies. Some of the things that I tell my classes were in Kibbe’s book, which focuses on the beginning of the writing process. Some of them are not. But here are a few tips that I like to give students on writing papers that largely supplements Kibbe’s work:
