THEOLOGY AND SANITY
Publisher: To be had in Kindle E-Book:
I played with the thought of dedicating this book TO ALL WHO KNOW LESS THEOLOGY THAN I. It would have sounded flippant. But it would have been exact. There are thousands who know more theology than I, and for them I have no message: they will have to teach me. But there are thousands who know less, and less isn’t enough: I will have to try to teach them. This book contains theology, not the great mass of it that theologians need, but the indispensable minimum that every man needs so that he may be living mentally in the REAL WORLD—which is what the word SANITY means in my title.
Sanity, understand that, does not mean living in the same world as everyone else; it means living in the real world. But one of the vital most important elements in the real world can also be known only by the revelation of God, which it is theology’s business to study. Lacking this knowledge, the mind will have to live a half-blind life, trying to deal with a reality most of which it does not know is there. This can be a wretched state for an immortal spirit, and pretty certain to lead to disaster. There is a great deal of disaster around at this moment.
