The author "reminds us that the living God whom we meet in prayer, Scripture, theology, and our present day world can be known and expressed in many and varied names. The church has known this truth for a long time, and is constantly forgetting it. Christians, especially theologians, can become either constant seekers after titillating novelties, or rigid defenders of theological systems that they venerate more than the living God. Jim offers us a theological approach to express our vision in old and new ways." -- Foreword.
