Key Quotes From Beth Moore

“I want so much for that listener or that reader to catch that fire for the love of Scripture and for the love of Christ. So one of the things that has been probably the most important part of the process has been just loving it myself.” 

“I want so much when I speak or when I teach, I want that listener or that reader or that viewer to be helped.”

“It’s absolutely critical that [people] know that although this is a timeless Word and it’s been on the page beginning to end, complete in every way for centuries, that it still has a living aspect. The Spirit of God who brought it into being, who breathed it on the page, is still breathing it. And so it’s still relevant for what we’re living through now.”
