Marsden is rightly contemptuous of the fatuous idea that an infusion of 'values' separated from a comprehensive world view would make any difference in the present state of affairs.
Wilfred M. McClay in 'Why the Academy Needs Christians' May/June 1997 Books and Culture
Incarnation is translation.
Andrew Walls, The Missionary Movement in Christian History, p. 27.

What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.
Gandalf, J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
