Spurgeon’s Insightful Quote about Faith-Hope-Love

Pretty soon I will be putting most of my “research energy” into a book project on Paul’s faith (pistis) language. Surprisingly, there are few (are there any?) books in wide circulation singularly devoted to analyzing Paul’s faith language. I have done some of my ground-work for a dictionary article on “Faith” that I wrote for Logos Software’s Lexham Bible Dictionary (I think my essay is being “edited” right now, but will be available in the not-too-distant future). Well, I can be thankful to Logos for a second reason – they posted this brief quote from Charles Spurgeon on Facebook:

“Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the windows which hope has opened.” ―Charles H. Spurgeon

Wow! This is brilliant. Expect to find this quote in my writings (properly cited, of course) at some point. I am sure I will be sharing it with students often in semesters to come.
