I love theology. I love theology in this sense, that is, theology as an attempt to know something about God and God's nature and will.
There are few theologians that I love as much as Stanley Hauerwas. Here's one more reason why I love his theology:
[The claim] that some think theological claims must be grounded in empirical proofs is based on the assumption that there is an essential tension between faith and reason. Even Christian theologians have sometimes underwritten the assumption that the faith of Christians cannot be rationally defended. However, the very presumption that reason is one thing and faith is another betrays a distorted view of reason. What Christians believe is not a “take it or leave it” choice, but rather an ongoing claim that all that is exists by God’s good grace. The working out of that claim is never finished.
