I’m getting the impression more and more each day that many theologians no longer bother to read the bible at all. It’s as though they are so unfamiliar with the foundation-text of their work that they can’t find their way around in it any more than a worm can find its way to the moon.
Update: I am teaching an MA class in liturgy. I brought Bibles from the library to use in class, and one of the students said that it was the first time he held a Bible in his hand during the entire five years of his degree program. R.G.
I rest my case.
