Graham Twelftree's website

I am not sure when this happened, but I am delighted to see that Graham Twelftree has a website. Not only that, but it is wholly unique in that it is geared toward students. There is PhD advice, namely, advice on how to choose a dissertation topic, writing advice, access to articles and Twelftree's first book. These are only a few features of this cool site.

On a personal note, Graham and his wife Barbara have always been extremely gracious to me. I have seen them at every SBL I have attended and have always had a wonderful time chatting with them. Graham's book Jesus the Miracle Worker: A Historical and Theological Study (Downers Grove: IVP, 1999) was one of the handful of studies that inspired me to pursue New Testament scholarship.

I would email you but I couldn't find an address anywhere. Anyway, I am Dr. Twelftree's graduate assistant and he wanted me to contact you. He was quite pleased to see your post, and he was curious about how you found his site.
Having created the site using a template and a pile of materials he wanted on it, I am now tightening it up, trying to get it to the point where it can be maintained without much effort.
I also wanted to say that I too struggle with too many books for the shelves, and too many shelves for the amount of space. If it helps any, Dr. Twelftree does as well, so I don't think any scholar is immune.

Hello. Thanks for stopping by, and sorry about not being able to find my email address. I will attempt to contact you.

I found his site by simply googling his name. I'm apt to do that when trying to keep up with my favorite scholars!

I think the site you have designed is awesome! Great job! It is one of the most comprehensive site I've seen from a scholar.

Thanks for your empathy regarding books! I guess it will have to be something with which I will always struggle!
