Basically this book deals with human characteristic and how in the eyes of God, it is seen to be wrong (though always we justify and justify). For example: Intellectual proof seeking
The free wind of inquiry must always continue to blow through the mind, must it not? "Prove all thing" ... to travel hopefully is better than to arrive.
'It that were true, and known to be true, how could anyone travel hopefully? There would be nothing to hope for.'
But you must feel yourself that there is something stifling about the idea of finality? Stagnation, my dear boy, what is more soul-desstroying than stagnation?'
....We know nothing of religion here: we think only of Christ
There are other characteristics of course which I should not mention (less this becomes a sermon more than a review). What I enjoyed most was not the lessons to be learned (I know that enough from Bible stories), but the way it is described. TRULY AMAZING !
