Just started reading this book NO PLACE FOR TRUTH (Rippon I have had this book since 2006) and in the intro the author has been making a case on the disappearance of theology. He argues that theology is primarily meant to nurture the people of God, and not for unbelievers which I agree. One can tell that theology is vanishing given the little interest that so few christians have in deep Bible study and reading good books. Fiction, self-help, and bonehead type books dominate the reading interests of many, and churches seem to dive so shallow into theology. My own church for example keeps everything mostly application oriented which is good to one degree, but to another not everything in the Bible is application based. So what do you say of all this?
