[T]here are certain attributes our faith assigns to God: omniscience, omnipotence, justice and grace. We human beings have such a slight acquaintance with power and knowledge, so little conception of justice, and so slight a capacity for grace, that the workings of these great attributes together is a mystery we cannot hope to penetrate.
Gilead, Marilynne Robinson
There are lovely passages of prose and important truths on nearly every page of this novel. If I tried to blog them all, it would take me months to finish it.
