Foundations of Academic Literacy: How to Turn Your Dissertation into a Book for a Broad Audience

March 8, 2024

In the new year, the Eastern European Institute of Theology continues its series of lectures on academic literacy. At the next seminar, we will discuss how to turn your theological research into a book for a wide range of readers. The speaker, Dr. Rico Villanueva, editor of Langham Publishing (UK), will share his experience of working on his book It’s OK to be not OK based on his thesis on imprecatory psalms. So the topic of this seminar is "Lamentation in a Church Dominated by Praise."

Dr. Rico Villanueva finished his PhD in Old Testament at Trinity College/University of Bristol, U.K. He is a pastor, seminary teacher, editor, and writer. He wrote a book entitled, It’s OK to be not OK which is a pastoral application of his PhD dissertation on the Psalms of lament published by BRILL as The Uncertainty of a Hearing: A Study of the Sudden Change of Mood in the Psalms of Lament. The book It’s OK to be not OK is now available in Filipino, English, Bahasa Indonesia, and Chinese. He recently published a book on depression and lament, entitled, Lord, I’m Depressed . He currently serves as the commissioning editor of Langham Publishing and Pastoral Care coordinator of current Asian scholars of Langham Partnership. Previously, he was the General Editor of the Asia Bible Commentary series, a commentary of each book of the Bible written from the Asian context. In the series, he wrote commentaries on the book of Psalms and Lamentations. He teaches part-time at the Asia Graduate School of Theology and Ateneo de Manila University.

The seminar will take place on March 8 at 10 am (Kyiv time) (Zoom).
