Responsible Theologians Teach the Gospel

Responsible theologians ought to order their teaching by the gospel, and also to ensure that whatever else their theologies may contain, the reader can see what the essence of the gospel is.

The failure to make the subject of the gospel explicit in some theologies means that the reader may not know in the end what the heart of the Christian message is.

It is by an exposition of the gospel that the theologian earns the right to proceed, since the gospel is the most significant revelation of all.
—Peter Jensen, The Revelation of God, 33.
