Default Theology and typography

"Creative Orthodoxy" is the title of a blog post by Ben Stevens, an American theologian currently working in Berlin. He writes,
What is the place of creativity or innovation in theology? This question has nagged me for years. How can one innovate while both remaining inside of, and even bolstering the case for, orthodoxy? The idea seemed conceptually possible, but I had always lacked a metaphor to explain how. Though I didn't realize it until recently,there happens to be an entire craft that illustrates this dilemma and suggests its solution: typography.

He even cites Beatrice Warde!
