Steven Hall, The Raw Shark Texts

Charles H. Spurgeon

“The Doctor is all of us, he lives and dies as all of us, and we need him to – because no matter the anvil-imagery of the Doctor as Christ, this is actually a far older and far simpler story than that. Everything changes. We all regenerate. I am not the same woman who first saw Rose ascend. Years go by and I become someone new, with the same memories but a new face, a new self.”
Catherine Valenti

John Eldredge

“The Doctor (Matt Smith): Legs! I've still got legs! Good. Arms. Hands. Oo! Fingers. Lots of fingers. Ears. Yes. Eyes two. Nose. I've had worse. Chin. Blimey. Hair. I'm a girl. No no. I'm not a girl. And still not ginger. There's something else. Something important! I'm- I'm- crashing! Ha ha! Geronimo!

-Doctor Who”
Russell T. Davies

David Kinnaman
“Most people in America, when they are exposed to the Christian faith, are not being transformed. They take one step into the door, and the journey ends. They are not being allowed, encouraged, or equipped to love or to think like Christ. Yet in many ways a focus on spiritual formation fits what a new generation is really seeking. Transformation is a process, a journey, not a one-time decision.”
David Kinnaman, unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity... and Why It Matters

“Death and Rebirth is one of the most crucial parts of life, without one the other simply cannot exist!”

Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

Andy Stanley
“It takes a habit to break a habit. You can pray every day for a generous heart, but until you start acting in that direction, nothing's going to change.”
Andy Stanley, Enemies of the Heart: Breaking Free from the Four Emotions That Control You

“God likes to make people. Great people out of common people, strong people out of week people, famous people out of the unknown people, good people are bad people. God likes to make people. That's an obsession with God, one from which He will never change.”
Don Baker, The God of Second Chances: The Remaking of Moses

“In her world, men loved women as the fox loves the hare. And women loved men as the tapeworm loves the gut.”
Pat Barker Regeneration

“But in his lapsed and sinful state, man is not capable, of any by himself, either to think, to will, or to do that which is really good, but it is necessary for him to be regenerated and renewed in his intellect, affections or will, and in all his powers, by God in Christ through the Holy Spirit, that he may be qualified rightly to understand, esteem, consider, will, and perform whatever is truly good. When he is made a partaker of this regeneration or renovation, I consider that, since he is delivered from sin, he is capable of thinking, willing, and doing that which is good, but yet not without the continued aids of Divine Grace.”
James Arminius

B.G. Bowers
“Change blows through the branches of our existence. It fortifies the roots on which we stand, infuses crimson experience with autumn hues, dismantles Winter’s brittle leaves, and ushers Spring into our fertile environments. Seeds of evolution burst from their pod cocoons and teardrop buds blossom into Summer flowers. Change releases its redolent scent, attracting the buzz of honey bees and the adoration of discerning butterflies.”
B.G. Bowers, Death and Life

N.T. Wright
“Christians do not avail ourselves of Plato's safety-hatch and say that the real world is not a thing of space, time, and matter, but another world into which we can escape. We say that the present world is the real one, and that it's in bad shape, but expecting to be repaired.”
N.T. Wright, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense

Andrew Murray
“Satan casts out Satan, it is only to enter afresh in a mightier, though more hidden power. Nothing can avail but this, that the new nature in its divine humility be revealed in power to take the place of the old, to become as truly our very nature as that ever was.”
Andrew Murray, Humility

Mark Buchanan
“This is the love of God, an alchemy that can turn enemies into children.”
Mark Buchanan, The Holy Wild: Trusting in the Character of God

N.T. Wright
“Christian holiness consists not of trying as hard as we can to be good but of learning to live in the new world created by Easter, the new world we publicly entered in our baptism. There are many parts of the world we can’t do anything about except pray. But there is one part of the world, one part of physical reality, that we can do something about, and that is the creature each of us call “myself.”
N.T. Wright

“We must remember that all stations are as much about life as they are obviously about death. All is redeemed. All is grist for transformation and glory.”
Megan McKenna, The New Stations of the Cross: The Way of the Cross According to Scripture

W.P. Kinsella
“I'm not trying to bleed you. I want to renew you.”
W.P. Kinsella, Shoeless Joe

W.P. Kinsella
“I have to absorb the new season like sunlight, letting it turn my winter skin pink and then brown. I must stuff myself with lore and statistics until my fingers ooze balm.”
W.P. Kinsella, Shoeless Joe

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“The real difference in the believer who follows Christ and has mortified his will and died after the old man in Christ, is that he is more clearly aware than other men of the rebelliousness and perennial pride of the flesh, he is conscious of his sloth and self-indulgence and knows that his arrogance must be eradicated. Hence there is a need for daily self-discipline.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

“All the beauty that's been lost before wants to find us again”

“one of the great virtues of Christianity, according to (John)Wesley, is the way it fills up our every waking hour. Both (N.T.) Wright and Wesley write that Christianity is not just about what God does for us but what God does in us.”
John Meunier

“I changed. I have been turning into a different person since that half-minute.”
Joy Davidman

Aleksandra Ninkovic
“We seek for an explanation,
crawling on this sacred Ground,
that is crying for salvation,
but not many hear the sound.
We yield to regeneration,
lost,we hope we could be found..
once exalted Gods creations,
fallen,but not yet profound.
Only Love,gives clear reflection,
that can turn our fate around.
Once we accept imperfection,
to ourselves we'll be rebound.”
Aleksandra Ninkovic

“The Resurrection is not a single event, but a loosening of God's power and light into the earth and history that continues to alter all things, infusing them with the grace and power of God's own holiness. It is as though a door was opened, and what poured out will never be stopped, and that door cannot be closed.”
Megan McKenna, And Morning Came: Scriptures of the Resurrection

“Having appeared at the end of the first creation, man [and women] stand at the beginning of the second, since the world is transfigured through [them].”
St. Justin

“When the convert emerges from the water, the world seems changed. The world has not changed, it is always wonderful and horrible, iniquitous and filled with beauty. But now, after baptism, the eyes that see the world have changed.”
Liturgy Training Publications

C.S. Lewis
“It is very bad to reach the stage of thinking deeply and frequently about duty unless you are prepared to go a stage further. The Law, as St. Paul first clearly explained, only takes you to the school gates. Morality exists to be transcended. We act from duty in the hope that someday we shall do the same acts freely and delightfully.”
C.S. Lewis, On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature
