“. . . the symptoms and effects of the life of faith are totally unspectacular. . . .true covenant faith is expressed by concern for others. . . .this concern is expressed by loving actions that promote the next person’s well-being and by verbal expressions of prayer for the next person. Block, Book of Ruth, p. 612. See also James 2:17.”
Daniel I. Block, Judges, Ruth

“In short, the book of Deuteronomy is the heart of the Torah, which priests were to teach and model,149 which psalmists praised,150 to which the prophets appealed,151 by which faithful kings ruled,152 and righteous citizens lived, and by which prophetic authors assessed Israel’s spiritual condition. This book provides the theological base for virtually the entire First Testament and the paradigm for much of its literary style.”
Daniel I. Block, The Triumph of Grace: Literary and Theological Studies in Deuteronomy and Deuteronomic Themes

“Frequently the tensions revolve around music and whether it should follow traditional or contemporary tastes. Increasingly we see congregations respond to these tensions in one of three ways: (1) they split into two or more churches, so each is free to pursue its preferences; (2) they establish multiple worship services, each gratifying one of these musical tastes; or (3) they adopt the philosophy of the contemporary music and worship industry, simply marginalizing those with traditional hymnic preferences and forcing them to leave or retreat into passive, resigned modes. While these responses have made worship attractive for younger people, their effects on the church’s witness are disastrous. Instead of worship uniting God’s people, conflicts over worship have divided them.”
