"God moves toward His world in care
and love. He is committed to
every part of His creation,
loving it and upholding it."

Tim Keller, Reason For God


"God's electing grace calls into
being a people charged
with the responsibility
of being the bearers of
His universal salvation."

Lesslie Newbigin,
The Gospel in a Pluralistic Society


"No good thing in the gospel
is good without the final
supreme good: God."

John Piper, God Is the Gospel

 


"When the fall is furthest,
is that not when charity
should be greatest?"
Victor Hugo

We believe the authors, pastors and theologians listed here formed the infrastructure to the Christian Universalist view we hold today. They have loved us, served us, and had our best interests in mind and we are grateful. For us they have built, supported and enriched our understanding of the Story of God. And it is this foundation that continues to sustain our faith in the God of the Scriptures. But we have come to see and experience the Story as bigger and more glorious than we had ever dared to hope or dream.
