“It’s about having our debts forgiven, not by something that we did, but because of who God is. God is that generous foreman who looks for ways to lavish forgiveness and love and gifts on us.” -Philip Yancey

“What I took away from childhood was we have to behave in a certain way to get God to like us, to get God to accept us. And I found that grace is actually exactly the opposite.” -Philip Yancey

“We leave off different scents in the world. Is it the kind of scent that people want to go, ‘Oh, no, not one of those.’ Or is it? ‘I’d like some of that.’… It’s a good thing to ask ourselves each day, what kind of scent are we leaving around us as followers of Jesus?” -Philip Yancey
