The competition wasn’t quite as intense as I’d anticipated (was more time needed, or are Ph.D candidates and postdoc researchers just not interested in these kind of ‘how to’ books?), so I’ve made an executive decision to give away at least one book to each of the four people who expressed interest.
Jacob: Kate Morss and Rowena Murray, Teaching at University: A Guide for Postgraduates and Researchers (London: Sage Publications, 2005)
Chloe: Gordon Rugg and Marian Petre, The Unwritten Rules of PhD Research (Maidenhead: Open University Press, 2004)
Pete: Estelle M. Phillips and Derek S. Pugh, How to Get a PhD: A Handbook for Students and their Supervisors, 4th ed. (Maidenhead: Oxford University Press, 2005)
Steve: Loraine Blaxter, Christina Hughes and Malcolm Tight, The Academic Career Handbook (Buckingham: Open University Press, 1998)
There is a fifth book – Penny Tinkler and Carolyn Jackson, The Doctoral Examination Process: A Handbook for Students, Examiners and Supervisors (Maidenhead: Open University Press, 2004) – which caught both Steve and Chloe’s interest. And so I put their names into a hat (well, a very, very small Really Useful Box) and pulled out: Chloe.
So, Chloe, Jacob, Steve and Pete: please contact me here and let me know where you’d like me to send your book(s).
About Providence, Divine Action and the Church
In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.
