QuotationDeeply impressed by this statement of Robert McAfee Brown: "All of the great movements of reform and renewal in the history of the Church have grown out of a rediscovery of the Bible, and there is every reason to believe that the present [contemporary] rediscovery of the Bible (both by Catholics and Protestants) may create a situation full of possibilities beyond our power to predict." [The American Dialogue: A Protestant Looks at Catholicism (New York, 1960), p 80]
