A review on A little exercise for young theologiansHelmut Thielicke in the book A little exercise for young theologians starts off being really harsh on young theologians to get his point across At first my reaction was to think he was being a little too critical I understand that in the process of learning you are not always going to get everything right I also think that sometimes it is a process of trial and error While you do not want to go around making up your own interpretations I believe that theologians will constantly be learning until the day they die It does not necessarily make them wrong it just means they still have more to learn Early on in life there is usually more enthusiasm which can be a great benefit to learning I do not think the fire needs to be quenched just put under controlOn the other hand there are many people that just try to impress people with big words They think if they sound smart people will believe them and be amazed The problem with that is that most people do get scared away As Thielicke put it they feel helpless One part in this book that really stood out to me was on page 19 when Thielicke talks about a certain type of minister and how he operates not to instruct but to destroy his church And if elders the church and the young people begin to groan if they protest to the church authorities and finally stay away from worship this young man is still Pharisaical enough not to listen one bitmy empty pews testify on my behalf This really stood out to me because I had a minister come to the church I grew up in and destroyed everything the church stood for all the while not seeing that he was the problem Since I was involved first hand in a situation like the one described
