„Molti di noi percorrono la vita in punta di piedi, così da raggiungere la morte in tutta sicurezza.“ da un discorso; citato in Selezione dal Reader's Digest, settembre 1997

„Ciò che dovremmo chiedere quando preghiamo è di svegliarci prima di morire. La vita può piantarci in asso da un momento all'altro. Non accontentiamoci semplicemente di una buona circolazione sanguigna.“ da un discorso; citato in Selezione dal Reader's Digest, settembre 1997


„But isn't it time for Christians to admit that we should reject bargains if they are gained by the exploitation of the poorest of the poor in developing countries?“ Red Letter Christians: A Christian's Guide to Faith and Politics, a Citizen's Guide to Faith and Politics

„I have three things I'd like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don't give a shit. What's worse is that you're more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.“

„Jesus never says to the poor: ‘come find the church’, but he says to those of us in the church: ‘go into the world and find the poor, hungry, homeless, imprisoned.“

„Perhaps because our culture and politics have gone so off course, with values so contrary to those of Jesus, more and more people intuitively recognize that His vision of God's kingdom-a new world of compassion, justice, integrity and peace- is the Good News they've been searching and waiting for.“ Red Letter Christians: A Christian's Guide to Faith and Politics, a Citizen's Guide to Faith and Politics

„Because I am not yet living up to what Jesus expects me to be in those red letters in the Bible, I always define myself as somebody who is saved by God's grace and is on his way to becoming a Christian. (...) Being saved is trusting in what Christ did for us, but being Christian is dependent on the way we respond to what he did for us.“ Red Letter Christians: A Christian's Guide to Faith and Politics, a Citizen's Guide to Faith and Politics

„He [William Jennings Bryan] recognized that what Darwin proposed on the biological level, when applied on the societal level, might legitimize an ideology that supports the survival of the fittest, with all of its dire complications. Byran was able to envision the kind of society that Social Darwinism would create- the kind of exploitation that comes from unbridled capitalism, for instance- and chose to war against it.“ Red Letter Christians: A Christian's Guide to Faith and Politics, a Citizen's Guide to Faith and Politics


„If we were to set out to establish a religion in polar opposition to the Beatitudes Jesus taught, it would look strikingly similar to the pop Christianity that has taken over the airwaves of North America.“

„Your past is important, but it is not nearly as important to your present as the way you see your future.“

„Even if there were no heaven and there were no hell, would you still follow Jesus? Would you follow him for the life, joy and fulfilment he gives you right now?“
