On Christian scholarship

“Of all scholarly communities, the Christian academy should be marked by the cooperative principle, with its connotations of charity, fellowship, and mutuality. But particularly as I read what we say on the Web and our readiness to ridicule others, I wonder how far our scholarly communities are realty distinguishable from the world’s. We want truthful, honest, faithful orthodox Christian scholars. We also need holy ones.”

—Michael J. Ovey, “The right to ridicule?” Themelios 37.2 (2012): 182-84
