SOUND BITES: Something to chew on that is good for the soul™: THE GOSPEL ACCOUNTS
No nation, and few individuals, are really brought into [God's] camp by the historical study of the biography of Jesus, simply as biography. Indeed, materials for a full biography have been withheld from [us]. The earliest converts were converted by a single historical fact (the Resurrection) and a single theological doctrine (the Redemption) operating on a sense of win which they already had... The "Gospels" came later and were written not to make Christians but to edify Christians already made.
-- C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) in The Screwtape Letters
