On Humanity

One of the great fallacies of our age (and perhaps of any age) is the belief that we have somehow outgrown the barbaric and benighted practices of centuries and millennia past.”

  1. Dave,
    that’s awesome that you are reading Sample! he is a very cool, level headed guy. I’m curious if you’ve already read his chapter: Know Which Hill You’re Willing to Die On. To me, this is the heart of the book and where I find the core of Sample’s view of a leader. He talks about Thomas More…this inspired me to read Man for All Seasons (captivating).
    talk to you soon, brother!

  2. Stephen, I was thinking of you as I read the book. He talks a few times about the leadership class you took from him. I’m reading the book for a ministry leadership class and I really appreciated what Sample had to say. I liked the “Hill” chapter. I thought that and the “being vs. doing” were both great thoughts.

    Peace!
