“God does not expect us to submit our faith to him without reason, but the very limits of reason make faith a necessity.” -- Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430)

“If the work of God could be comprehended by reason, it would be no longer wonderful, and faith would have no merit if reason provided proof.” --  Pope Gregory the Great (540-604)

“Faith and sight are set in opposition to each other in Scripture, but not faith and reason.... True faith is essentially reasonable because it trusts in the character and the promises of God. A believing Christian is one whose mind reflects and rests on these certitudes.” -- John R. W. Stott (1921-2011)
