In The Antediluvian Librarians’ Secrets to Success, the authors draw on their combined experience and unique perspective as librarians to address the most common concerns they hear students express. Their light-hearted approach, combined with eye-catching illustrations, makes for a friendly work students can read from beginning to end or refer to as they move through their first anxious weeks of seminary.
In easy-to-digest segments, the book reveals the kind of strategies for being a graduate student that are seldom revealed in the classroom. Consisting of seven sections, The Antediluvian Librarians’ Secrets to Success offers guidance on such varied topics as reading strategically, asking questions, managing time, practicing self-care, staying organized, and tackling that first paper. It also offers lists for further reading and thoughtful pieces of advice. Although the authors are theological librarians, the recommendations they offer are just as practical for students beginning any graduate program in the humanities.
Deeply useful for anyone entering seminary or theology school both now and in the future, The Antediluvian Librarians’ Secrets to Success is the first work released from the new Bridwell Press.
Schubert Miles Ogden (1928-2019) was one of America’s preeminent theologians during the last fifty years and spent a significant part of his career at Perkins School of Theology (SMU). During this time he engaged with a broad range of topics and concerns in his writings and teachings, producing an extensive theological body of work. What many in that academic world did not know was that Ogden was also a formidable man in the kitchen, constantly experimenting, testing, and coming up with a variety of recipes, from the distinctly delicious German-style baked goods like stollen to Schubert’s Own Salmon Loaf. He even had a signature cocktail called the Minister Margarita. In this present volume titled Food for the Soul: The Recipes of Schubert Ogden we have the second book published under the new Bridwell Press imprint that brings to life a lesser-known aspect of Ogden’s dynamic life and world. Instead of the adventures of the great scholar’s theological works, in this book we have an element of joyful surprise in his gastronomical oeuvre, and maybe there is something new and illuminating to discover in that as well. This compilation will certainly find a warm and inviting home among both theologians and non-theologians alike, especially if you like to experiment with the never-ending nuances of food.
