Christianity means this....or nothing

"How can you live with the terrifying thought that the hurricane has become human, that fire has become flesh, that life itself became life and walked in our midst? Christianity either means that or it means nothing. It is either the most devastating disclosure of the deepest reality of the world, or it is a sham, a nonsense, a bit of deceitful playacting.

"Most of us, unable to cope with saying either of these things, condemn ourselves to live in the shallow world in between."

-- N.T. Wright, "For All God's Worth...." (Eerdmans), p. 1
