“A true theology must be a preachable theology, and it must speak to the hearts and minds of believers, even if they do not have an earned doctorate in the field. Academics must not be divorced from spirituality or practical matters that affect us as ordinary church members. If we cannot speak to them, we cannot speak to anybody, and our theological pretensions are worthless.”
Gerald Bray

“Saint Hilary saith these words plainly in the ninth canon upon Matthew: ‘Faith only justifieth.’ 14 And Saint Basil, a Greek author, writeth thus: ‘This is a perfect and whole rejoicing in God when a man avaunteth not himself for his own righteousness, but knowledgeth himself to lack true justice and righteousness, and to be justified by the only faith in Christ. 15”
Gerald Bray, The Books of Homilies: A Critical Edition

“The Bible is not a self-help manual for our improvement to the point where we are worthy of heaven, but the proclamation of God’s rescue plan, which he devised, carried out, and has now implemented in the mission of the church. The Christian life is therefore an appropriation of that grace, not a striving to achieve something beyond our grasp. It is a message of forgiveness for our sins, not of condemnation for having failed to make the grade.”
Gerald L. Bray, Augustine on the Christian Life: Transformed by the Power of God
