“The Bible will never be a living Book to us until we are convinced that God is articulate in His universe.

To jump from a dead, impersonal world to a dogmatic Bible is too much for most people. They may admit that they should accept the Bible as the Word of God, and they may try to think of it as such, but they find it impossible to believe that the words there on the page are actually for them.

A man or woman may say, ‘These words are addressed to me,’ and yet in their heart not feel and know that they are. They are the victim of a divided psychology. They try to think of God as mute everywhere else…and vocal only in a book.”
