“Our desire for certainty, our need to be right, and our tendency to miss the point have conspired to keep Christians from experiencing unity, and instead have lead to endless divisions within the Christian faith” (Page 10). … “What riches are to be found if we can humbly listen and learn from one another, appreciating our differences, while together seeking to follow Jesus Christ” (Page 12).

“Ultimately, what is needed is humility. I [Adam Hamilton] appreciate the statement of Sir John Templeton: ‘Humility is a gateway to greater understanding and open[s] the door to progress.’ Templeton is known for being the proponent of what he calls, “the humble approach” to both science and religion. Humility is essential to Christian Faith. And that humility should be rooted in our expanding awareness of how small we are and how truly great God is” (Page 13-14).
