Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

As this review states "...reading it is enough to inspire missionary fervor. You must read this book." I tend to mark passages in books with small colored tabs. My copy of this book has at least 30 tabs... A couple of quotes then:

"Nowhere in Scripture is there a father who behaves wickedly toward his child, but the rich and powerful in Scripture are wicked much more often than not."
"Feuerbach is a famous atheist, but he is about as good on the joyful aspects of religion as anybody and he loves the world. Of course he thinks religion could just stand out of the way and let joy exist pure and undisguised."
