Quote of the Day (Garry Wills, on Knowing Jesus Through St. Paul)

“It was Paul who brought the good news to many communities. He still brings it to us….[W] hat Paul meant was not something other than or contrary to what Jesus meant, but we can best find out the latter by studying the former. His letters stand closer to Jesus than do any other words in the New Testament. They were the first to be penned, the first to be saved.”—Garry Wills, What Paul Meant (2006)
