A Critique Of Modernism

I just finished reading the complete lecture that Benedict gave that outraged the muslims.

What a great lecture it was! Benedict talked about not separating Faith and Reason and applied it to modern criticism. If you are one of my classmates in Dr. Hahn's class I would suggest reading it all, since it coincides very nicely with what we have been discussing concerning the misuse of historical criticism.

My favorite quote, and the one I felt that summed the whole lecture up, was:

"The courage to engage the whole breadth of reason, and not the denial of its grandeur – this is the programme with which a theology grounded in Biblical faith enters into the debates of our time."
