Worth Pondering

From Stephen Holmes, a Baptist theologian on the divinity faculty at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland:

Whilst humility is remembered as a theological virtue, conservatism will remain an appropriate theological stance, and historical theology, which is to say the patient, careful and respectful study of the writings of the doctors of the Church, will continue to be a central part of theological work.
