Thinking about the important relationship between past events (and the attitudes that follow those events) in the past week with the advent of Victory Day caused me to pick up a book I read several years ago. The opening chapter of the book (The Collapse of History: Reconstructing Old Testament Theology) has an interesting set of quotes. I just wanted to share them with you.
History above all is a cemetery and field of the dead. - K.G. Steck
God created man, because he loves stories. - Elie Wiesel
The past is not dead; it is not even past. - William Faulkner
If thinking wants to think God, then it must endeavor to tell stories. - Eberhard Jungel
