Stanley Hauerwas, who is officially the best theologian in the USA, thinks that the best theologian in the modern WORLD is in this picture. NO, it's not MM; it's the dear professor next to her. Yes, "Stan" says that Joe Jones is the best theologian in the modern world; Stan introduced us, and Joe became my favorite professor and current mentor. Professor Jones coined the patron phrase which you will find in our side bar. That's us at Yale, a photo from this Spring's Commencement; and this morning, I am bundling myself and my dog into the car for a drive up to Muskogee, OK, for a weekend visit with the Jones family.
"Witness to the reality of the living triune God is the raison d'etre of the Church and is the most comprehensive context in which to understand her other traits, actions, and images."
