Theological hope rejuvinated

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:08 pm by tobytaff

Well, my loathing of all things theological has subsided.  As I was doing research for my paper this Thursday I found myself enjoying reading the Prolegomena materials from several Systematic Theologies.  They gave me the hope and inspiration to push beyond Karl Rahner mentally.  I think what really did it for me is this quote by Millard Erickson:

“Indeed, theology seems to have certain disadvantages.  It complicates the Christian message, making it confusing and difficult for the lay person to understand.  It thus seems to hinder, rather than help, the communication of the Christian truth.”

Christian Theology p. 29

Its nice to know a theologian gets it even if he does think it is necessary.
