“What we need is evangelicals and Catholics who discern the primary demand of our time: a celebration of our heavenly participation in the eternal Word of God. Only a heavenly minded Christian faith will do us any earthly good.”
Hans Boersma, Heavenly Participation: The Weaving of a Sacramental Tapestry

“The modesty that theology needs is the recognition that we cannot rationally comprehend God.”
Hans Boersma, Heavenly Participation: The Weaving of a Sacramental Tapestry

“The rise of modernity corresponded with the decline of an approach that regarded the created order as sacramental in character. The patristic and medieval mind recognized that the heavenly reality of the Word of God constituted an eternal mystery; the observable appearances of creation pointed to and participated in this mystery.”
Hans Boersma, Heavenly Participation: The Weaving of a Sacramental Tapestry
