Jenson on the Christian Calling to Intellect

"Christians' calling to intellect is the calling to nurture the word, to tend books and foster argument … We serve a talkative God, who does not even seem to be able to do without a library. In his service, we will be concerned for talk and libraries. And some of us will have the privilege of spending a lot of time at that concern."

— Robert Jenson, Essays in Theology of Culture, (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., Grand Rapids, MI, 1995)
