Abstract

Every word that you speak or write as a theologian will be a product of human reason. What else could it be? As soon as you have put a moment’s thought into what you say, or as soon as you accept that what you say might be open to any kind of correction, you have already become involved in reasoning. It makes no more sense to ask whether your words are too much or too little the product of reason than it does to ask whether the words I am writing now are too much or too little the product of my typing. What matters is not the quantity, but the quality and kind of reasoning involved.
