[Leonard Arrington]
Statement submitted to 43rd edition of Who's Who:

A religious historian must be tenacious in preserving his bilinguality; he must attempt to speak with authority and excellence in addressing his professional colleagues in the language of scholarship and, in the language of faith seek to provide his fellow-communicants with another experience, another soul, new understandings of life. [[Arrington is musing over the contradictory, irreconcilable expectations of him, not that he actually sent this for submission in the Who's Who bibliographic dictionary.]]
