Nothing New

Thoughts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the 1930's
Bonhoeffer observed that Union [a liberal theological school in New York City] was on the side of Fosdick, Rockefeller and Luce [liberal "Christians"]. In an attempt to be more sophisticated than the fundamentalists, whom they hated, they had jettisoned serious scholarship altogether. They seemed to know what the answer was supposed to be and weren't much concerned with how to get there. They knew only that whatever answer the fundamentalists came up with must be wrong. (Bonhoeffer - Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy; p102)
