“Writing a book about the Bible” by N.T. Wright

“Writing a book about the Bible is like building a sandcastle in front of the Matterhorn. The best you can hope to do is to catch the eye of those who are looking down instead of up, or those who are so familiar with the skyline that they have stopped noticing its peculiar beauty.”

–N.T. Wright, The Last Word (New York: HarperCollins, 2005), ix.

    I totally agree with the above statement…I think both of those groups are important to reach. I want to write a book aimed at those people. Can I use the quote above (with proper credit, of course) in my book?
