Craig G. Bartholomew

From his inaugural address as the H. Evan Runner Professor of Philosophy at Redeemer University College, "For Such a Time as This: The Relevance of the Neo-Calvinist Tradition Today":

The practice of public theology will lead us into spiritual warfare and involve taking up the cross. And if we are to go this route then we need to ensure that we weigh the costs and have adequate resources. Several years ago I heard Sheila Cassidy speak in Cheltenham. A young Christian doctor, she went to serve in Chile. There she made the fatal mistake of treating a government opponent. She was arrested and tortured, torture which included electrical shocks to the genitals. In her talk in Cheltenham she made the point that we need images of God that are adequate to the journey of life.
