Quote of the Day (A.N. Wilson, on the ‘Non-Historical Nature’ of the Gospels)

“The non-historical nature of the gospel narratives should not make us dismiss them as inventions. It is simply the case that their way of writing a narrative is not our way. If the authors had been inventing the whole story, they would surely have made it more emphatic, banishing doubt.” — A.N. Wilson, “He Is Risen!” The Financial Times, Apr. 4-5, 2015

(The image accompanying this post deals with the resolution of doubt: the 1602 oil painting Doubting Thomas, by Caravaggio.)
