Don’t respond to a philosopher with a Bible text

Eastern European Institute of Theology held the second seminar of Foundations of Academic Literacy for Authors of Scholarly Articles, which aims to form and develop authors' competencies in writing theological articles for academic journals. A speaker of the second seminar was Pieter Lalleman, Editor-in-Chief of European Journal of Theology. In the seminar Pieter Lalleman shared his experience as the editor of a theological journal. He discussed some common mistakes and shared some advice on things such as subject choice, writing style and line of argument.

Article is not a bag of goodies, it's one argument.
