An Unimaginably More Potent Witness

The best evangelical theological work emerges from the delight in the Christian gospel, for the gospel announces a reality which is in itself luminous, persuasive, and infinitely satisfying. That reality is Jesus Christ as he gives himself to be an object for creaturely knowledge, love, and praise.

To think evangelically about this one is to think in his presence, under the instruction of his Word and Spirit, and in the fellowship of the saints.

And it is to do so with cheerful confidence that his own witness to himself is unimaginably more potent than any theological attempts to run to his defense.
—John Webster, "Jesus Christ," in The Cambridge Companion to Evangelical Theology, 60.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
