It is not enough to convince our intellects; our imaginations need to be caught by — and caught up into — the Story of God’s restorative, reconciling grace for all of creation. It won’t be enough for us to be convinced; we need to be moved. Otherwise we’ll just be reading Wendell Berry in Costco; we’ll be convinced but not transformed.

-James K.A. Smith, Desiring the Kingdom
