NT Wright in ReJesus by Hirsch & Frost

Is it okay to quote a quote from an author in a book that author did not write? lol…here goes! The quote below is taken from page 92 of The Challenge of Jesus by NT Wright and appears in ReJesus by Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost.

“My proposal is not that we know what the word “god” means, and manage somehow to fit Jesus into that. Instead, I suggest, that we think historically about a young Jew, possessed of a desperately risky indeed apparently crazy, vocation, riding into Jerusalem in tears, denouncing the Temple, and dying on a Roman cross–and we somehow allow our meaning for the word “god” to be recentered around that point.”
