Our passion is not for academic respectability, but for faithfulness to the commands of Jesus. Our lament is not for the destruction of the elite culture of Western civilization but for our deficiencies in our everyday discipleship as Christians. Our mission is not the recovery of some lost golden age of purportedly better Christian thinking but the renewal of a church today that has integrity, faithfulness, and effectiveness in its thinking. Once again, Christianity is first and foremost a matter of love—of minds in love with God and the truth of his world.
