What I've Been Reading

Simply reading the Bible, I encountered not a misty vapor but an actual Person. A Person as unique and distinctive and colorful as any person I know…I marveled at how much God lets human beings affect him. I was unprepared for the joy and anguish---in short---the passion of the God of the universe…I had lost the force of the passionate relationship God seeks above all else. The people who related to God best---Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah---treated him with startling familiarity…They treated him like a person.

-Phillip Yancey, Disappointment with God
