Quote of the Week from J.I. Packer on How to Do Theology

Posted: January 9, 2009 by Rick Hogaboam in Uncategorized

As I often tell my students, theology is for doxology and devotion—that is, the praise of God and the practice of godliness. It should therefore be presented in a way that brings awareness of the divine presence. Theology is at its healthiest when it is consciously under the eye of the God of whom it speaks, and when it is singing to his glory.
