Redemptive Optimism

"It is not enough for a prophet to believe in his message; he must believe in its acceptability. He must have confidence in God and in the image of God." G.K. Chesterton

Dr. Grant,
Where is this quote from? Is it the same place your other GKC quote is from too?
Also, the math quote is very interesting, the Arx Axiom Math session were mind twisting.
Thanks,
E&J

This is from Chesterton's essay on Carlyle in "Twelve Types." the other one is from the introduction to "The Balad of the White Horse."
