Quote 46

“All life, high and low, sordid and noble, vile and pure, is the province of art. Surely if the Bible is to be our standard we must admit that nothing lay outside the province of the inspired writers.  A Christian writer cannot be a significant writer if his vision does not include the whole of human life, the depths of depravity as well as the heights of aspiration.”

(James Wesley Ingles, from “The Christian Novel and Evangelical Dilemma”)
