3 3 types of sources
3.3 Types of Sources

1. PRIMARY SOURCES: These are the materials that you are directly writing about, the “raw materials” of your research. In fields that study writers or documents, the texts you write about are primary sources. In fields such as English or history, you usually cannot write a research paper without using primary sources. [Craft of Research, 69]

3 3 types of sources25
3.3 Types of Sources

2. SECONDARY SOURCES: These are books and articles in which other researchers report the results of their research based on primary data or sources. You quote or cite them to support your own research. If a researcher quoted your paper to support his argument, your paper would be his secondary source. If, on the other hand, he were writing your biography, your paper would be a primary source.

3 3 types of sources26
3.3 Types of Sources

3. TERTIARY SOURCES: These are books and articles based on secondary sources, on the research of others. Tertiary sources synthesize and explain research in a field for a popular audience or simply restate what others have said. Tertiary sources can be helpful in the early stages of your research, but they make weak support for your argument because they often oversimplify and over-generalize, are seldom up to date, and are usually distrusted by experts.

4. The Use of Commentaries:

4.1 "Commentaries are valuable aids, if properly used, but they are not meant to relieve the interpreter of the task of making his own commentary on the sacred text." [Danker, p. 305]

3 5 commentaries their usage43
3.5 Commentaries & their Usage

4.2 "A cordial suspicion of commentators is therefore the first rule in approaching them for exegetical assistance. Question the structure of their proof. Determine how well they construct the case for their own interpretations and how fairly they dispose of the interpretations of others." [Danker, p. 305]

3 5 commentaries their usage44
3.5 Commentaries & their Usage

4.3 "Bristle when a critic says 'unconvincing,' without demonstrating why the adverse decision is made. You may be exposed to a cheap shot. Check commentators’ parallel passages in context. Does the concordance reflect a discriminating use of all the linguistic data? How do the theological and philosophical presuppositions of the commentator affect the exposition?" [Danker, p. 305]

3.5 Commentaries & their Usage

4.4 "It is wise, then, after you have made your own thorough interpretations of the text… to check your interpretations against those of theirs, to re-evaluate if necessary, and to supplement if possible." [Danker, p. 306]
