The Writing Life of Craig Keener

From research to writing to editing

By Chase Replogle — Chase is the pastor of Bent Oak Church in Springfield, and hosts the Pastor Writer Podcast. A native of the Ozark woods, he enjoys being outdoors with his wife and two kids: fly-fishing, playing the mandolin (badly), and quail hunting with his bird dog Millie.

I’ve recently been working through Craig Keener’s 4-part commentary on the Book of Acts. I’ll be preaching through the Book of Acts this summer and fall. Keener’s book is remarkable and massive. I once heard a scholar suggest that it will be the most important work on Acts for at least the next 100 years.

I came across this interview, in which Keener explains his approach to research and writing. Having written more than twenty books, his advice is insightful and inspiring.
