The greatest treasure the world has ever seen or wanted

Referring to the bible, Bullinger says:
  "For by the vigilant care and unspeakable goodness of God, our Father, it is brought to pass, that no age at any time either hath or shall want so great a treasure."

How to put your theological education to good use

"A good rule of thumb is that if you cannot express your ideas in ordinary language that the person in the pew could understand, then they are probably not worth airing. If you need to talk about 'realized eschatology' and 'redaction critical technique' then either you haven't grasped the ideas very firmly yourself or they are probably pretty irrelevant."
  -- Laura Jervis, Keeping Your Balance, ed. Philip Duce & Daniel Strange, p48
