Cool quote by the late Lesslie Newbigin. Got this from the Off the Map newsletter. (By the way, Off the Map has some great stuff for evangelism.)



“Jesus manifestly did not intend to leave behind him simply a body of teaching. If that had been his intention he simply would have written a book and we would have something like the Koran instead of the book we have. What he did was prepare a community to be a bearer of the secret of the kingdom”
