“The dogmatic task is not simply to ascertain what the prophets and apostles said but to determine what we must say now on the basis of their testimony.”

“Doing theology is being taught by God and being formed by God into fit instruments of his service. It involves an in-depth engagement with the Word of God animated by a zeal for the glory of God.”
