"the bishop speaks for himself."

"He gives an account, with Episcopal self-assurance, of what Christians believe, which I, who have long answered to that description, read with true astonishment. . . . I feel I must appeal here to the kindness of my non- and post-Christian readers.  Regarding all such supposed issues of faith, believe me, to the best of my knowledge the bishop speaks for himself."

     Marilynne Robinson, "The fate of ideas:  Moses," in When I was a child I read books (New York:  Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012), 98-99 (95-124).
