A Favorite Quote from Fire In The Bones

Posted on

“It is hard for us today, with our Bible comfortably resting in the fold of our hands, to understand the sacrifices required to bring it out of the darkness of an earlier age to the light of modern eyes.  We ponder in shock that a standard question of the Inquisition was “Have you read or do you own the scriptures in the common tongue?  

Are we sufficiently grateful for the ease with which we reach for divine truth?  Do we realize the faith demanded of former souls whose hunger for the harvest of God’s word cleared the forests of resistance, dug out the stumps, piled the rocks, and turned the hard soil so that the seed of the word might be planted in fertile minds?”

    I think I need to read this book! The gospel “according to man” can be so dangerous!
