Example text

Cut off from the source of life, the whole human race is given over to death. Only God is his own autonomous and endless source of life. It is therefore necessary for the branches to be cut off from the dying tree called Adam and transplanted in God, the endless source of inexhaustible life. But how can such transplantation take place? It is here that the doctrines of Trinity and incarnation become crucial. The dying branches of Adam are cut off by baptism and transplanted into Christ. Because Christ is the Son and therefore fully God, he can serve as the source of life for human beings united to him by faith and baptism.

God is beyond sexuality, beyond male and female, and the names of God have an analogical rather than a univocal signification. Christian theology has always insisted that apophatic theology, which proceeds by denial of what God is not, is higher than kataphatic theology, which proceeds by affirmation. 36 TAKING THE LONG VIEW The implied counterproposition, however, is not true: namely, that because our affirmations cannot capture the mystery of God’s being, it does not matter very much what we call God.

So, too, the sparklike moments of discernment of which fallen humanity is capable kindle neither affection nor insight unless they are drawn together into an intelligible pattern. The second image presupposes the darkness of a lonely countryside as a storm is brewing. The moon and the stars are covered by thick clouds, and the only light available to the traveler crossing a meadow is provided by sudden flashes of lightening. Momentary flashes of light are better than no light at all, but they serve more as a warning of the traveler’s predicament than as a useful guide out of it.
