I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Quote of the Day: History and Bias

"...it must be asserted most strongly that to discover that a particular writer has a 'bias' tells us nothing whatever about the value of the information he or she presents. It merely bids us to be aware of the bias (and of our own, for that matter) and to assess the material according to as many sources as we can."--N. T. Wright, The New Testament and the People of God, p. 89.
