“The Spirit which Jesus promised would lead his followers ‘into all truth’ is very actively at work wherever he is allowed.  Some of his work is painful in the extreme.  There has often to be the breaking-up of old ways of thinking, the expansion of responsibility, and the checking of priorities.  Anyone who opens his personality to the living Spirit takes a risk of being considerably shaken.”

J. B. Phillips, Ring of Truth: A Translator’s Testimony. New York: Macmillan Company, 1967, page 122.
