The ever growing emphasis on specialization in theological circles, coupled with constant pressure on theological researchers to come up with new theories, have, in many cases, turned theological study into an esoteric undertaking with no direct or indirect relevance to the church or society at large. In order to avoid the "museum of endangered species" that looms around the corner for a self-sufficient, highly specialized theology, theological research must, once again, take the church seriously as an eventual participant in the theological discourse. Theologians must learn to popularise their findings and to open new windows on God for people of the third millennium.
