Historians or Historical Theologians?

May 27, 2009

Here’s a quote from Peter Martyr Vermigli that illustrates well my desire to be more than simply a historian, but to be a theologian:

“Let us apply ourselves with supreme diligence to the word of God. We are called theologians and that is how we want to be known. Let us live up to our name and profession unless we should prefer being patrologists instead of theologians. Our profession absolutely requires us to deal with the words of God.”
