Subject matter for meditation and prayer

It occurred to me while reading in Genesis that doctrine makes practical subject matter for meditation and prayer, and it is in this context that Boston's Human Nature in its Fourfold State, which presents Biblical doctrine so completely and powerfully and in such epic structure, can be of preeminent use. It is the raw material of art and literature and human nature and the very plan of God. Used in this context this book's value comes alive.

"...doctrine makes practical subject matter for meditation and prayer..."

Obviously! Didn't mean for that sentence to sound like it was an epiphany for me. I should have put a "Since..." in there somewhere.
