Paul Zahl quote:

from "Heart for the Future" essay (available at --

..."The 'present,' or present moment, on the other hand, is an abstraction. It is a construct that disappears into thin air the moment it is objectified. For the non-Christian, the present is a repetition of the past, a constant being-pulled-backwards. For the Christian, the present is a creature of the future, deriving its vibrancy, its meaning, and its value entirely from what lies ahead."
