Justin Martyr, Deb Elkink, & The Third Grace

The following words remind me of @Deb Elkink's inspiring Mennonite novel The Third Grace: .

"We do indeed proclaim ourselves atheists in respect to those whom you call gods, but not in regard to the Most True God, the Father of righteousness and temperance and the other virtues, who is without admixture of evil." St. Justin Martyr, writing about 150 AD, quoted in The Faith of the Early Fathers selected by William A. Jurgens.
