“Intellectual questions and doubts naturally arise when we read Bible stories because to our rational minds they often seem so utterly unbelievable. Perhaps we need a new frame of reference. When we open the Bible we should enter its pages with an attitude of Bring it on! Only then will we see the power of this incredible book.”
Ruth A. Tucker, The Biographical Bible: Exploring the Biblical Narrative from Adam and Eve to John of Patmos

“As God’s lawyer I was a dead failure; as God’s witness I was a success.”
Ruth A. Tucker, From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya: A Biographical History of Christian Missions
