Scot McKnight on George Eldon Ladd

There is a great post on Jesus Creed about a great scholar. You can click the link to read the article. Below is my favorite quote from the article...can I get an Amen?

"...I don’t believe our goal as Bible or theology scholars is to be deemed among the finest of scholars or to find a place at the table, but to be faithful to Jesus Christ and to the gospel and to orthodox theology and to academic rigor. Yes, we are to work to discover and to be creative, but the driving passion to prove ourselves at the feet of others falls short of a true Christian telos. I’d put it this way: we are called to be faithful, whether we are accepted or not."
