"The title of this volume perfectly reflects the commitments of the honoree: David Dockery is a man of robust theological convictions, but no less committed to discourse characterized by civility. One inevitably recalls Paul's exhortation to truth and love. The essays in this volume are diverse in character and scope; several assess Dockery's contributions. But it is the theme of the book as a whole that is compelling, for it stands athwart twin monsters of our ageanemic theological sentimentality on the one hand, and bad-tempered ignorant dogmatism on the otherand cries "Stop!" by showing a better way."

"For many of us in the business of Christian higher education, David Dockery has been a model for how he has combined firm evangelical convictions, broad-based ecumenical charity, and unusual academic insight. Now, as he heads northwards after very productive years at Union University, this book reveals why I am delighted as a Yankee evangelical that he has come over to help us. "
