Talbot Davis reflects on the celebration of ambiguity that sometimes rises up in the discourse of the church.
He begins with an acknowledgement of the ambiguity of much of art and even Scripture.
However, I believe it’s one thing to celebrate and acknowledge artistic and Scriptural ambiguity and it’s an entirely different matter altogether to regard it as the hallmark of theological education. Such an approach leads to indecision, uncertainty, and hesitation in Gospel proclamation.
I suggest that in the middle of the ambiguity that surrounds us, we are confronted with the assurance and the boldness of the Gospel itself.
