Today's Maxwell Quote

From the 1991 FARMS Annual Recognition Banquet:
By the way, I think your helping another group. I don't know the demographics of this group. They are a most interesting group and it isn't your primary constituency, but George McDonald who was C.S. Lewis' mentor in absentia had a quote I share with you, "It is often the incapacity for defending the faith they love, which turns men into persecutors." Defenders beget defenders and one of the significant side benefits of scholars who are devoted, such as the men and women who are represented here tonight, is that we will at least reduce the number of people who do not have the capacity to defend their faith and who otherwise might "grow weary and faint in their minds" (Hebrews 12:3).
