Book Overview

While courses in Bible and theology typically require research papers, particularly at the graduate level, very few include training in research. Professors have two options: use valuable class time to teach students as much as they can, or lower their standards with the understanding that students cannot be expected to complete tasks for which they have never been prepared. From Topic to Thesis: A Guide to Theological Research offers a third option. This affordable and accessible tool walks students through the process, focusing on five steps: finding direction, gathering sources, understanding issues, entering discussion and establishing a position. Its goal is to take students directly from a research assignment to a research argument--in other words, from topic to thesis.

   If You Are a Theological Student, Buy this Book!
If you are a new theological student, you must own and read this book. I can teach an introduction to theological research course at an evangelical seminary in the United States, and this book will be assigned to my students beginning in the fourth semester of 2016. The chapter on identifying and using sources is particularly helpful. The excursus on errors that students make in using research sources is worth the price of the book. Note also the appendix on navigating the ATLA religion database, one of the most essential resources for theological research.
   This is a must have book.
Currently I am in school for a degree in leadership and Münstery. This is a must have book for anyone who writes papers in a biblical way. I rented this book for my English class and then bought it for me to have as a reference.
   Quick tips
This short read describes exactly how the process goes. My thesis at the beginning was very different from the one I turned into. Plan to write it to friends who have to pass long research papers.
   Concise, relatable and helpful!
Kibbe's gift in writing suggested steps to articulating research papers effectively and efficiently, along with his examples and resources, makes this a valuable tool! So much in a book!
   Settled my nerves about my foray into graduate religion studies...
It has been far too long since I have had to write an academic '' paper and certainly not one for the humanities! Dr. Kibbe's work provides a good step-by-step framework for getting organized around a topic, doing your research and assembling what you need to make a coherent thesis and defending it. I feel like I'm a little better prepared for my new academic journey!
   Absolute gold!
This book should be kept close for those who write academic papers.
   Concise and easy to read
Concise is easy to read and is simple to digest. Zotero thanks for the helpful tips! I wish I would have known in undergrad about this...
