Top Highlights

“In John’s Gospel, Jesus is one with God, with respect to man, in creation, revelation, and authority; yet he is one with man, with respect to God, in submission, dependence, and obedience.” (Page 34)

“Our ultimate goal is not the transformation of society, as valuable as that may be. Our ultimate goal is pure worship in the unrestricted presence of God.” (Page 22)

“In short, genuine conversion is not measured by the hasty decision but by the long-range fruitfulness.” (Page 98)

“But modern believers, too, best discover renewed faith and fortitude, not by clinging to isolated spiritual aphorisms and evangelical clichés, but by returning to a deep understanding of the historical and redemptive structure of their faith.” (Pages 19–20)

“Christians often think of Jesus as God’s gift to us; we rarely think of ourselves as God’s gift to Jesus.” (Page 184)
