A candidate for Baptist ministry was asked if he had enjoyed his time at College.
"No" he said, "But I learned stuff."
"Can you give an example of something important you learned", he was asked - the usual open question on the hunt for evidence.
"The definition of a good book", the wary reply.
"And what is that", the obvious follow up.
"A thin yin", the reply in unadulterated colloquial Scots!
And faur frae bein' wrang, he wis dead right!
"The book offers a fresh vision of the justice of the Triune God to a world anguished by deprivation, division, ecological degradation and the loss of a sense of purpose and direction. Their praxis theology of the life-giving Word and love of God made tangibble in the particularities of cosmic and human history speaks to the crises and sufferings of our time."
And so it does.
