A selection of writings by Clarence Jordan titled The Inconvenient Gospel is not a long read, but I don’t want to read it too quickly.
Everything seems quotable.

You can’t put Christianity into practice. You can’t make it work.As desperately as it is needed in this poor, broken world it is not a philosophy of life to be “tried.” Nor is it a social or ethical ideal which has tantalised humankind with the possibility of attainment.
For Christianity is not a system you work – it is a person who works you. You don’t get it; he gets you.
