Quote of the Day

Quote of the day (from H. Richard Niebuhr’s Christ and Culture, p. xlix):

The distinction between the median types arises from the variations in their methods of combining the disparate elements in Christian ethics. Three main groups seem distinguishable—the synthesists, the dualists, and the conversionists; but since ‘synthesis’ and ‘dualism’ are big words, we may indicate the types more accurately by naming them architectonic, oscillatory, and conversionist.
