“The notion that we read the New Testament exactly as the early Christians did, without any weight of tradition coloring our interpretation, is an illusion. It is also a dangerous illusion, for it tends to absolutize our interpretation, confusing it with the Word of God.”
Justo L. González, The Story of Christianity: Volume 1

“History is not the pure past; history is a past interpreted from the present of the historian.”
Justo L. González, The Story of Christianity: Volume 1

“There is a close relationship between faith and reason, for one cannot function without the other. Reason builds its arguments on first principles which cannot be proven, but are accepted by faith. For the truly wise, faith is the first principle, the starting point, on which reason is to build.”
Justo L. González, The Story of Christianity: Volume 1
