Donald MacKinnon on John Hick (plus a bonus quotation)
'Some thinkers strive for clarity at all costs, while others wrestle with reality at its darkest points.'
To that I would like to add a MacKinnon quotation on apologetics, cribbed shamelessly from Ben over at Faith and Theology:
“The philosopher is not an apologist; apologetic concern, as Karl Barth (the one living theologian of unquestionable genius) has rightly insisted, is the death of serious theologizing, and I would add, equally of serious work in the philosophy of religion.”
