“Christianity now is in crisis, and a large part because people have marketed it as a religion of good people getting better, when in fact it is religion a bad people coping with their failure to be good.”
William McDavid, Law & Gospel: A Theology for Sinners

“Not how it is meant. Law is defined by its effect rather than its intention, and its chief affect his accusation, the intimation of less-than.”
William McDavid, Law & Gospel: A Theology for Sinners

“While self-help and science-of-happiness books fill whole quadrants of bookstores, the fact that business is booming is a verdict unto itself: We may buy each new bestseller on the power of positivity, but each fresh purchase suggests its lack. As much as we wish it were true, we can’t seem to prove that the positive thinking industry is working itself out of a job.”
William McDavid, Law and Gospel: A Theology for Sinners
