Illustration of Divine (and Organic) Inspiration

“Illustrations are possible; explanations are impossible. The simplest (and, I believe, the most effective) illustration is a stained glass window. Outside the window there is (for the purposes of the illustration) the pure sunlight; inside, that pure light is broken up into the colours and patterns introduced by the stained glass. Yet the light and the colorations are not at variance; each coloured panel or shard of glass is there by the design of the craftsman, and the fresh colours, the story, now imposed on the pure sunlight does not distort it, but enables it to be what the craftsman intended.” -Alec Motyer,  A Christian’s Pocket Guide to Loving the Old Testament
