Thomas C. Oden quote

"There is a quality of lightness, easiness, and in some sense blatant unseriousness that pervades Classical Christianity's dialogue with modernity. The Christian intellect has no reason to be intimidated in the presense of later-stage modernity. Christianity has seen too many 'modern eras' to be cowed by this one."

- from Tom Oden's powerful and prophetic book, Agenda for Theology.

This quote calls to my mind G. K. Chesterton, who had just such a levity about his writing. His delightful book, Orthodoxy, is now available online, along with many other classic works at the Christian Classics Ethereal Library.
