NT Wright: Advice to Seminarians

I ran across this clip by N. T. Wright in which he outlines three things he believes the next generation of clergy should do.

Here is his advice for seminarians.

  1. Know the Bible, thoroughly, in the original languages.
  2. Learn how to pray, for the world and its people.
  3. Learn how to love people.

Thanks to Michael Bird and Patrick Schriener for alerting me to this.

Here is the video clip


  1. Without #3, #1 and #2 are merely the sound of a clanging gong.

  2. Gee, does that mean that we can keep Biblical studies, Languages, and Spiritual formation and get rid of everything else? We could get an M-Div. in no time! ;o)
