And the mystery theologian is...


Yes,  as Tom Underhill was the first to point out, it was John Frame who said,

"To know God is to know him as Lord and therefore to pursue knowledge of him in a godly way. As we come to know God, we recognize that he initiates our knowledge, that his Word is the ultimate authority for our knowledge, and that in knowing God we come into a personal relationship with him. Theology is the application of Scripture to all areas of human life." (Salvation Belongs to the Lord: An Introduction to Systematic Theology, P&R, 2006, p. 72).
