Quotes by James Bryan Smith  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The most important aspects of our lives cannot be rushed. We cannot love, think, eat, laugh, or pray in a hurry...When we are in a hurry--which comes from overextension--we find ourselves unable to live with awareness and kindness.”
James Bryan Smith, The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows

“Christianity doesn't answer all my questions or make me comfortable and happy. What it does do is give me a context for living.”
James Bryan Smith, Rich Mullins: A Devotional Biography: An Arrow Pointing to Heaven

“spiritual life is not a life of laws and precepts but a life of participation, affection and love, a life mingled and mixing with God.”
James Bryan Smith, The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows
