- "Once we had lost the author, it didn't take long to lose the larger story. In the postmodern era, all that is left is our small stories... an arbitrary collection of scenes and images without any bigger picture into which they fit. The central belief of our times is that there is no story, nothing hangs together, all we have are bits and pieces, the random days of our lives. Tragedy still brings us to tears and heroism still lifts our hearts, but there is no context for any of it." -John Eldredge
"This is a world of magic and mystery, of deep darkness and flickering starlight. It is a world where terrible things happen and wonderful things too. It is a world where goodness is pitted against evil, love against hate, order against chaos, in a great struggle where often it is hard to be sure who belongs to which side because appearances are endlessly deceptive. Yet for all its confusion and wildness, it is a world where the battle goes ultimately to the good, who live happily ever after, and where in the long run everybody, good and evil alike, becomes known by his true name.
That is the fairy tale of the Gospel with, of course, one crucial difference from all other fairy tales, which is the claim made for it that it is TRUE, that it not only happened once upon a time but has kept on happening ever since and is happening still."
