G. K. Chesterton, the famous British writer, was once invited to a meeting of the leading intellectuals in England. They were asked if they were shipwrecked on an island, what would be the one book they would want to have with them. Everyone expected Chesterton, a prominent Christian, to say “the Bible.” When it came his turn to speak, however, Chesterton said that if he were shipwrecked on a desert island, he’d like to have “Thomas’s Guide to Practical Shipbuilding.”
Now there is an intelligent Christian!
Chuck Colson wrote about this recently and highlights the fact that we need to look at and engage with life holistically, not just spiritually. Food for thought.
The Bible is of utmost important but we don't want to be like the Pharisees who knew the Scriptures so well but missed Jesus (John 5:39-40) … and God's will for us is revealed in many ways, including through people, creation, wisdom and life experience.
