Articulate Faith, of the Lively Mind. 


“We longed for a lively life in Christ but we did not fully see that we were equally longing for the lively life of the mind – the delights of conversation at once serious and gay, which is, whatever its subject, … the ultimately civilized thing. 

“When we spoke of the lively life in Christ, we meant keenness, but we also meant the subtle discourse on the meanings of Christ’s way that is, in fact, only possible among highly articulate and civilized Christians.”

A Severe Mercy, by S. Vanauken.
