Whoever wishes to be and perceive things too quickly and too directly in New Testament ways is to my mind no Christian.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, letter to Eberhard Bethge, Dec 5, 1943, in Letters and Papers from Prison, DBW-RE, p. 198. Bonhoeffer is stressing the importance of the Old Testament for the Christian, an especially provocative assertion for a German theologian in 1943.
