Jericho and Things Fall Apart

Jericho by Barnett Newman

“Narrow is the Way and few the number. To fill the Lord’s holy temple with an idolatrous crowd clamoring for signs was a folly of everlasting consequence.  Our lord used the whip only once in his life - to drive the crowd away from his church.”

Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
