The Missing Bible

March 10, 2009

“What is missing is the Bible. I mean the whole Bible, with its blood and guts and sins and horrors–and all of it under the massive hand of God. The hand whose fingers flick stars into being. The hand that gives life and takes it. The hand that rules everything. Everything. What we need is to know the great things about God. Knowing great things about God will help make us ready not to collapse under cataclysmic conflict and personal catastrophe” (John Piper, Spectacular Sins and Their Global Perspective in the Glory of Christ [Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2008], pp. 14-15).
