How to stop theological study ruining you

Francis Chan was asked for some advice by someone about to start a theological course. He began by explaining some of the hazards common to seminary students (and perhaps to all of us as we get serious about studying the Bible):

1. Making God into a topic we study

2. Pride

3. Having a full head, and an empty heart

And then showed us some ways to avoid them:

1. A consistent devotional life

2. Engaging with people through evangelism


A call for a new kind of theology to be written and preached
A surprising answer to the "Why Me?" question
Rick Warren appeals for civility
Did Karl Barth summarize his life message as “Jesus Loves Me, This I Know….?”
