"The primary source of the appeal of Christianity was Jesus - His incarnation, His life, His crucifixion, and His resurrection."
"A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act."Kenneth Scott Latourette on Mahatma Gandhi
"God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, 'I love you.'"Kenneth Scott Latourette on Billy Graham
"We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine."Kenneth Scott Latourette on Dwight L. Moody
"Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song."Kenneth Scott Latourette on Pope John Paul II
"The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake."Kenneth Scott Latourette on Basil Hume
"The most that one of Jewish faith can do - and some have gladly done it - is to say that Jesus was the greatest in the long succession of Jewish prophets. None can acknowledge that Jesus was the Messiah without becoming a Christian."
"Christianity emerged from the religion of Israel. Or rather, it has as its background a persistent strain in that religion. To that strain Christians have looked back, and rightly, as the preparation in history for their faith."
"Religiously the Empire was pluralistic and marked by a search for a faith which would be satisfying intellectually and ethically and would give assurance of immortality."
"In the third century after Christ the faith continued to spread."
"The history of Christianity, therefore, must be of concern to all who are interested in the record of man and particularly to all who seek to understand the contemporary human scene."
