Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School:
We live in a transcendence-starved culture and in a transcendence-starved evangelicalism. . . . We’ve so dumbed down the gospel and dumbed down worship in a good effort to reach as many people as we can that there’s almost a backlash. It comes from this great hunger for a genuinely God-centered, transcendence-focused understanding of who God is and what God wants us to do and what God has given us in Jesus Christ.
