In his review of Berkouwer’s book, A Half Century of Theology in Themelios, Vol. 4, No. 1, New Series, September 1978, pp. 40-41, Bruce Demarest describes Berkouwer’s view of faith and reason, Demarest commends him for his careful avoidance of “the polarities of a mindless fideism and a faithless rationalism” (p. 41).
Lord, help us to love You – and help us to love one another. How can we say that we love You if we are not learning to love one another? How can we learn to love one another if we are not opening our hearts to the greatest love of all – Your love for us. Fill us with Your love. Change us by Your love. May our whole life shine with the glory of Your love.
