Synopsis: A Christian's resource to the best quotations to enhance a life of faith inclues more than 20,000 quotes from more than 2,500 sources. Original.
From Library Journal:
By "Christian Quotations" Water means quotations that may be inspirational, informational, or otherwise useful to Christians, regardless of their source or subject. This is evidenced by the inclusion of quotations from such non-Christian sources as Epicurus and Robert Ingersoll and regarding matters not explicitly Christian (for example, Eddie Cantor's "A sleeping pill will never take the place of a clear conscience"). Among the specifically Christian sources quoted there are standards from St. Augustine and C.S. Lewis as well as those not likely to be found elsewhere (e.g., Norman Geisler and Henry Morris). This and the number of quotations (20,000+) are the strengths of the work. Its weaknesses are its categories, cross references, and citations. Along with the usual categories of faith, hope, and love, are "Armenianism and Calvinism," "Official Teachings of the Mormons," "Ninety-Five Theses," and "Famous Bible Verses in the King James Version." All of these seem unlikely topics for users seeking quotations. Though there are numerous cross references in the volume, there are none from subheadings like "Baptism" or "Church" under the main heading "Roman Catholic Doctrine" to or from the main headings for those subjects. And, like the Doubleday Christian Quotation Collection (LJ 9/1/98), most of the quotations are cited only by the name of the person quoted. Not recommended. Craig W.
