quote of the day

The fact that such theories are now fashionable should put us on our guard against adopting them too readily. It is fatally easy, when a theory is in vogue, to read it into the Bible, in a manner which would have astonished the sacred writers, and to find evidence for our belief in a mere turn of phraseology.

–D.E.H. Whiteley, The Theology of St Paul (1964), 45.
