Thesis Results

Not much time today but thought you might be interested to know my MTh thesis has returned to me, having been anonymously marked by two NT scholars (but there aren't that many in NZ to choose from - so feel free to guess who) and they both liked it, giving it 9.0 or an A+.  Just a few typo and grammar errors to sort and I should be publishing it online shortly.  In the interests of bragging I thought I would share with you some of the comments.  I promise I will return to my usual humble self soon.

And the second marker was also very kind, 

How do you like them apples?  Well it isn't really bragging, it is more promoting the forthcoming (online) publication.


  1. Congrats. I look forward to reading it.

  2. Brag away, when you have something this good to brag about. Most people brag about much less. Of course, we knew you were smart and a good writer or we wouldn't be reading you here ;)

  3. Woo hoo! "Result!"

    Well done and so pleased for you.

  4. Super stuff, and you preach as well as you write!

  5. Well done! how are you receiving the encouragement to start on a PhD? :-)
