Unlovely Orthodoxy

Dr. Ray Pritchard
Dr. Ray Pritchard

"I think unlovely orthodoxy, unbeautiful Christianity is a tragedy. We have pugilistic Christians; we have acrobatic Christians; we have athletic Christians; we have big-domed, learned Christians. We have all kinds of Christians, but where are the beautiful ones, those who shine with inner beauty? I am looking for them, and I pray that God will send us a revival, not of noise and nonsense, but of beauty with God dwelling in us."

A. W. Tozer, from the message The Man Who is Indwelt at Urbana 1954.
