More of the same from Bell. He is a humorous writer and brings out some new thoughts from Scripture, but is lacking in clarity and orthodoxy. He includes a "helpful" tool at the end to interact with the people who don't agree with you which seems pre ...more

Katherine Paterson
“The growth of the imagination demands windows-windows through which we can look out at the world and windows through which we can look into ourselves. The old stories were windows in just this way.”
Katherine Paterson

Frederick Buechner
“More than the painting you see or the music you hear, the words you read become in the very act of reading them part of who you are, especially if they are the words of exceptionally promising writers. If there is poison in the words, you are poisoned; if there is nourishment, you are nourished; if there is beauty, you are made a little more beautiful. In Hebrew, the word dabar means both word and also deed. A word doesn’t merely say something, it does something. It brings something into being.”
Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking: A Theological ABC

G.K. Chesterton
“For our Titanic purposes of faith and revolution, what we need is not the cold acceptance of the world as a compromise, but some way in which we can heartily hate and heartily love it. We do not want joy and anger to neutralise each other and produce a surly contentment; we want a fiercer delight and a fiercer discontent. We have to feel the universe at once as an ogre's castle, to be stormed, and yet as our own cottage, to which we can return at evening.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

G.K. Chesterton
“And the more I considered Christianity, the more I found that while it had established a rule and order, the chief aim of of that order was to give room for good things to run wild.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

Confucius
“If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things. If language be not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success. When affairs cannot be carried on to success, proprieties and music do not flourish.”
Confucius, The Analects
