The Queen of the Sciences now a scullery maid

In the Introduction to his A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith, Robert Reymond justifies theology as an intellectual discipline which has fallen upon “hard times.” In the discussion he shares this great quote from Gordan Clark:

Theology, once acclaimed ‘the Queen of the Sciences,’ today hardly rises to the rank of a scullery maid; it is often held in contempt, regarded with suspicion, or just ignored (p. xxvii).
