A Quote!

From "The God Who Is There", by F Schaeffer, a bit that I particularly like...
"In our modern forms of specialized education there is a tendency to lose the whole in the parts, and in this sense we can say that our generation produces few truly educated men. True education means to think by association across the various disciplines, and not just being highly qualified in one field, as a technician might be. I suppose no discipline has tended to think more in fragmented fashion than the orthodox or evangelical theology of today......The orthodox christian has paid a very heavy price, both in the defense and communication of the gospel, for his failure to think and act as an educated man..." Of course, I'd apply that to men and women alike....=)
