While various scholarly strategies for engaging in or avoiding public discourse are recognized as valid, several factors conspire to induce, even compel, biblical scholars to speak their minds in public. This essay examines the various forums in which biblical scholars enter public discourse and the issues they typically address, both in biblical studies and current affairs. It further assesses the net effect of biblical scholars in shaping public policy. Finally, it focuses on the special challenges and dilemmas biblical scholars face when they engage in public discourse, or decline to do so.
