“It is not the Old Testament which lends authority to the New Testament.  Rather the New Testament gives authority to the Old Testament.  The prophetic writings, the law of Moses, “shone out” when Jesus came.  It was the coming of Jesus that set them in plain light.”
(from The Interpreter’s Bible)

“We are here to witness the creation and to abet it…especially we notice the beautiful faces and complex natures of each other.  We are here to bring to consciousness the beauty and power that are around us and to praise the people who are here with us. We witness….”   Annie Dillard

“It is difficult, if not impossible, to teach doctrine without personality.”
David O. McKay

“Was it possible to see the hypocrisy of the scribes, the pride of the priests, the rapacity of the elders, the materialism of the masses, the treachery of Judas, the debauchery of Herod Antipas, and view these things with detachment?”
(from The Interpreters  Bible)
