Sometimes we hear it said that ten minutes on your knees will give you a truer, deeper, more operative knowledge of God than ten hours over your books. ‘What!’ is the appropriate response, ‘than ten hours over your books, on your knees?, Why should you turn from God when you turn to your books, or feel that you must from your books in order to turn to God? If learning and devotion are as antagonistic as that, then the intellectual life is in itself accursed and there can be no question of a religious life for a student, even of theology.

    Surely the balance of Study and Prayer over the Holy Scripture is a life experience for the Christian! Growth must be there, but often this growth comes somewhat long and hard, or at least with great mystery before light seems to crack! But, crack it does, as we “grow in grace and knowledge.” But the depth is always the Lord Himself! WE worship HIM, Who is Totally-Other, and Transcendent!
