Theology Is Not Boring

While there may be boring theologians and boring theology classes theology, itself, is never boring. In the sublime words of the great Wesleyan teacher, William Burt Pope:
Hence every branch of this science is sacred. It is a temple which is filled with the presence of God. From its hidden sanctuary, into which no high priest taken from among men can enter, issues a light which leaves no part dark save where it is dark with excess of glory. Therefore all fit students are worshippers [sic] as well as students.
