The Bible Geek Gone Wild blog first came about in 2005, when I found myself in a difficult position where I had to drop out of my graduate program at Wheaton College due to financial reasons. Just because I was leaving grad school behind, I didn’t want stop learning. My goal with the blog was to keep up a regular diet of reading books related to biblical and theological studies and to write about them. In those days, I ran the blog at ShaunTabatt.com. My blogging efforts continued there until I moved to the current domain of BibleGeekGoneWild.com in July 2008.
