Posting this here since I'm not sure where to ask it. Since a lot of you are ETS and SBL members, I wanted to get your input on this.
Since I'm wanting to continue to pursue Biblical academic studies and a Biblical academic career, I'm considering joining ETS and SBL. I've already filled out my ETS application form and will mail it in soon. I'm also considering SBL.
For both, I'm looking at getting a student membership (and for ETS one of my professors can represent me as a sponsor).
What are the advantages to having both an ETS and SBL membership, and are the advantages to having an SBL membership worth having it in addition to an ETS membership (if I go for a student membership plus the print journals it'd be about $150/year)?
I'm taking my M Div right now. Will get a Ph D after completing my M Div.
