Seems Jim West has written a paragraph that I agree with without reservation:
Don‚Äôt get me wrong, I love Mark Goodacre. As a person and as a scholar. But unlike Mark and others I cannot compartmentalize my life or my interests. I find no fault with those who can and do‚Äîbut I simply cannot. I don‚Äôt have an academic side and a pastoral side and a personal side and a private side. Such bifurcation, such compartmentalization, is, for me, a falsehood. One is who one is and the compartmentalization of life is timidity.
This in response to a fascinating post by Chris Brady. Well done, both of you!
