Quote from Gospel and Wisdom

 


The wisdom literature in its own distinctive way steers us towards responsible Christian living which applies the reality of Christ to every level of human existence. On the one hand it gives us the perception to make sense of our world, and on the other hand it strengthens our trust in God in the face of things we cannot make sense of. As we pursue wisdom in this gospel-centred way, we discover more and more how Christ is both the starting point and the goal.

— Graeme Goldsworthy, Gospel and Wisdom (p.533)
