“After suffering much from the anti-intellectual and anti-doctrinal temper of our times…”

In the preface of Biblical Theology, Geerhardus Vos writes in 1948,

“After suffering much from the  anti-intellectual and anti-doctrinal temper of our times, Theology is perhaps in somewhat better repute now than during the early years of the present century.  This change of attitude is to be welcomed, even though it must be confessed that even more conservative Protestant circles Theology is still far from receiving the attention and respect which, as the knowledge of God, it ought to have.”
