Not For the Faint of Heart

"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 benefits 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."

  1. Amen to those thoughts n the Bible. I remember really studying the Bible when I was teaching seminary one year. It almost seemed R-rated.
    It is not a book for the faint of heart; but so many stories that inspire.
    Blessings and hugs!
