quote of the week: Jaroslav Pelikan on Christian doctrine

Christian doctrine is what the church believes, teaches, and confesses as it prays and suffers, serves and obeys, celebrates and awaits the coming of the kingdom of God.
Jaroslav Pelikan, Development of Christian Doctrine: Some Historical Prolegomena, 143, from Kevin J. Vanhoozer, The Drama of Doctrine: A Canonical Linguistic Approach to Christian Theology, 399.
