"...the closer approximation of knowledge and aspiration"

"It is absolutely certain that the world will once again some day achieve what it has often had and often lost--the closer approximation of knowledge and aspiration--so that its religious system may satisfy the soul of the saint without disgusting the intellect of the scholar. What is uncertain is whether this achievement will be made by any form of organised Christianity or is reserved for some movement which cannot at present be recognised."
-- Kirsopp Lake, Landmarks in the History of Early Christianity, 1920

That was 90 years ago, where do we stand now? And what are our prospects?
