"There was a sculptor once, so they say, who sculpted a statue of our Lord. And people came from great distances to see it. Christ in all his strength and tenderness. They would walk all around the statue, trying to grasp its splendour, looking at it now from this angle, now from that. Yet still its grandeur eluded them, until they consulted the sculptor himself. He would invariably reply. 'There's only one angle from which this statue can truly be seen. You must kneel.'"
Quoted from David Robertson's Magificent Obsession, who quotes from John Stott
