Choose One Great Theologian

“When I was in seminary, a wise professor told me that, in addition to the Bible, I ought to choose one great theologian and apply myself throughout life to understanding and mastering his thought – to sink at least one shaft deep into reality rather than always dabbling on the surface of things. I might, in time, be able to ‘converse’ with this theologian as a kind of peer, and know at least one system with which to bring other ideas into fruitful dialogue.”

John Piper, The Supremacy of God in Preaching, (Baker Book House, 1991) p.  65
