A Little Exercise for Young Theologians

Scot McKnight has a nice post about the relevance of Helmut Thielicke’s little book “A Little Exercise for Young Theologians” to blogging over at Jesus Creed » A Little Exercise for Young Theologians.

I’ve used Thielicke’s book in theology classes in the past – particularly the section on the first year theological student returning to their home church and failing to talk the language of the people there, and instead parading all the terms and language they have learnt but without significant reflection upon them, or having integrated of them into a robust theological view, and without the humility essential to a theologian serving the people of God.
