What Thatcher has produced is a unique composite of two disparate genres: the history of research and the professional memoir. The result is a book that is both deeply informative and utterly fascinating. --Wayne Meeks, Woolsey Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Yale University
The very shape of this project is quite original; I found the actual tales related by the senior scholars quite engaging. This is a resource instructive for those just beginning their serious study of scripture and for those of the guild as well. --Harry Attridge, Dean of the Divinity School, Yale University
What We Have Heard recognizes that biblical scholarship is done by real people, whose interests and perspectives change over time. It is not an abstract discipline. --Craig Koester, Professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary
