“The wonderful paradox, which lies beyond our understanding, is that the cross was simultaneously the outpouring of God’s anger and the outpouring of God’s love. For in his love for us, God was absorbing, in Christ, his anger against sin.”

Chris Wright (The God I Don’t Understand)


“Every Christian should be both conservative and radical; conservative in preserving the faith and radical in applying it.”

John Stott (1921 – 2011)


“We modern people think of miracles as the suspension of the natural order, but Jesus meant them to be the restoration of the natural order. The Bible tells us that God did not originally make the world to have disease, hunger, and death in it. Jesus has come to redeem where it is wrong and heal the world where it is broken. His miracles are not just proofs that he has power but also wonderful foretastes of what he is going to do with that power. Jesus’ miracles are not just a challenge to our minds, but a promise to our hearts, that the world we all want is coming.”

Tim Keller (The Reason For God : Belief in an Age of  Skepticism)
