    “Dazed with fear and weakness, he was back in the Grass Ocean.” –speaking of Atreyu in The Neverending Story, an excellent book.

    “The Karenins. The Princess was characterizing Karenin.” Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.

    “He commanded the Corinthians to remove from their fellowship a man guilty of gross sexual immorality (I Cor. 5:1-7).” John MacArthur’s commentary on Acts.

    Hmmm… I like J Mac! I really appreciate his humility when dealing with those who disagree with him. Saw it first hand at a Ligonier conference.
