The Goal of Graduate Study in Theology

A good graduate program in theology stands for something; it has a corporate personality. This is more important than most graduate school applicants realize. An intellectual is not someone who knows a lot. The goal is not just to fill your mind. Graduate study should help you develop an overall outlook, a habit of mind, a point of view.
—R.R. Reno, "On Graduate Study in Theology," in First Things.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
