← Why am I reading theology?

sgturner59's Avatar Jump to comment 20 by sgturner59

I studied theology for eight years at a Catholic university in New York, taking a BA in general theology and a MA in Biblical theology. It's drivel. The scholastics offer a rigorous system if you're willing to accept an Aristotelian worldview. The most common form of academic buffering was the phrase "theology is faith seeking understanding, " ie, faith is required for genuine theological understanding.
