Pooh Day

A. A. Milne, author of Winnie the Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, and Now We Are Six, was born in 1882 at St. John’s Wood, London. Of his chosen profession he quipped, “Almost anyone can be an author; the difficult business is to actually collect money from this state of being.”

Dr Grant, I have a seemingly arbitrary question and I don't have much expectation that you'll be able to provide this information but thought I'd give it a shot.

In one of your Christendom lectures, in fact at the end of the one on Acts I do believe, you quoted a man whose name I couldn't catch and in all my queries and research I've been unable to find it myself. Could you perhaps shed some light?

The quote: "in days to come, only madmen or fools will be able to undertake to understand the coursings of history apart from this man, Jesus."

Very gratefully,
Louisiana student
