Calvin Miller on Advent
Christianity Today Magazine – The Dick Staub Interview: Calvin Miller on a Southern Baptist’s View of Advent
I would always believe in Jesus if for only one reason, and that is because these little people who were absolutely rural and virtually prosaic suddenly become inflamed with the world on their minds. People like Simon Peter, once content to fish in a little lake called Galilee, died 1,500 miles away in Rome because they got to preach the gospel in a bigger context. I think that’s remarkable. Here’s Mary, a hill girl, who suddenly is doing this beautiful sonnet we call “The Magnificat.” She sings and the world is thrilled. Operas are written around it. Nobody but God could put this together.
