Prepare, Succeed, Advance: A Guidebook for Getting a PhD in Biblical Studies and Beyond by Nijay K. Gupta

Achieving a PhD in Biblical Studies raises questions about different stages of the process commonly encountered by those who venture into the academic world. In Prepare, Succeed, Advance, Nijay K. Gupta divides the procedure into three specific phases: Prepare, which focusses on choosing the right doctoral programme and applying for it; Succeed, which deals with the delicate challenge of writing a defensible thesis; and Advance, in which he gives advice on how to face issues with success in career development in the academic field. Gupta offers discussions of and answers to the most pertinent and pressing questions that prospective and current doctoral students come in contact with in a guidebook that tackles any doubts from an authoritative perspective with a remarkable amount of personal experience.
