Just been reading something Tony Campolo said about learning theology. He was concerned that theological learning is only useful if you have the cultural awareness to communicate into the current context.

Karl Barth said a good preacher should be able to develop a sermon with a bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other.

[Note to self: A good scholar would have dug out Karl Barth from the shelf and had a look for the original quotation!]
