There are still places where, if church members found themselves sitting around a kitchen table, the discussion of correct doctrine, of who knows and understands it, would be carried on with great enthusiasm. However, if spiritual matters that pertain to the passion of the soul were to be suddenly interjected, such as the closeness to God in prayer, the stirring of mercy and compassion, etc., the conversation would be met with a measure of embarrassment.

Before I ask a minister whom I don’t know what theologians he reads, I ask him what novels he has read. If he reads novels, I go on to poetry. If he doesn’t read novels, I lose interest in the conversation. Then, for my nightly devotions, I pray for those who listen to his sermons and experience his pastoral care.
