The Liberating Power of the Gospel

A commenter to my post below drew attention to this quote (thanks, CQ!):

The gospel is like tree roots growing underneath the sidewalk. Sooner or later, the liberating power of the gospel–for Gentiles, slaves, and women–breaks through the repressive concrete of cultural mores and norms that discriminate and oppress. Dr. George O. Wood
