Inspirational Quotes by Adrian Rogers

If you’ve ever heard a message by Adrian Rogers, then you are aware of his quick wit and exceptional wisdom. But neither his wit nor his wisdom ever overpowered the message of the Gospel; rather, it complemented it. These inspirational quotes were tools—gifts—he used to effectively communicate the truth of the Bible for everyday living. And over the years they have become identifiable with, and almost inseparable from, him. They have become “Adrianisms.”
