Rich Mullins

"The Bible is not a book for the faint of heart- it is a book full of all the greed and glory and violence and tenderness and sex and betrayal that befits mankind. It is not the collection of pretty little anecdotes mouthed by pious little church mice- it does not so much nibble at our shoe leather as it cuts to the heart and splits the marrow from the bone. It does not give us answers fitted to our small-minded questions, but truth that goes beyond what we even know to ask." -Rich Mullins

I actually meant to write a bit about where I found this quote and why it hit me hard yesterday. But obviously it speaks for itself.

Powerful quote. I thought the author was going to be C.S. Lewis.

Reminds me of one of Mark Twain's quotes: "It's not the parts of the Bible I don't understand that bother me. It's the parts I do understand."
