When the Truth Hits You

“When watching a movie, listening to a song, or reading the Bible, our minds shouldn’t click into place too easily or too often. When they do, we might do well to wonder whether we’re seeing life the way we’d like it to be or the way it is. It could be the difference between well-manufactured fantasy and moral revelation” (David Dark, The Gospel According to America: A Meditation on a God-blessed, Christ-haunted Idea (Louisville, KY: Westminster John Knox Press, 2005), 123).
