Athanasius on Theology and Godliness

“Thus Athansius insisted that theologia and theosebeia, theology and godliness, belong inseparably together: for genuine knowledge of God arises only within an intellectual experience of his transcendent reality and majesty, and is maintained in the continuous context of worship, prayer, holiness and godly living.”

from T.F. Torrance, Theology in Reconciliation, 248
