Quotemeal: Jul. 7th, 2007

Saturday, July 7, 2007

"When we learn to read the story of Jesus and see it as the story of the love of God, doing for us what we could not do for ourselves – that insight produces, again and again, a sense of astonished gratitude which is very near the heart of authentic Christian experience."
— N.T. Wright
