"There is a place for knowing and hearing and reading.  But there has to come a moment of personal surrender.  Our commitment to God has sufficient objective truth so that the truth claims can be verified.  The Bible is not a fanciful book of spiritual speculation conjured up by dreamers.  There are historical, geographical, and philosophical  assertions that can be measured and confirmed by the historian, the archeologist, and the philosopher respectively.  But the point of real contact comes when that third-person knowledge--that knowledge about God--becomes first-person trust in God and commitment to His will.  Only then does personal understanding bring a transformed attitude." ~ Ravi Zacharias, Cries of the Heart, p. 82
