Although I like the way things are phrased here -- it does convey the essence of the man quite nicely -- I have to say that it strikes me as being in all likelihood a straight transcription from the intro on a video or audio tape of a talk by Joe Pearce. If so, does that violate a WP rule??
Moreover, that would account for the garbled, to-the-best-of-my-knowledge non-existent noun "inure". I'm fairly certain that has to be "inquiry". I must confess, I am truly puzzled -- and amused! -- that "inure" has been left intact ever since the very first edit. I suppose everyone is just so inured to odd word-choices that it didn't seem out of place. :)
