But while reacting as it is to the excesses of the historical-critical method, Protestant Christian hermeneutical culture has still let that method condition its exegesis and approach toward things divine. It remains in many ways preoccupied with a logical historical, often compartmentalized approach to exegesis and approach to God. Today much of Protestant Christianity is also struggling to come to terms with a Christ who is fully human, fully divine at one and the same time in one and the same person, the God-man, Jesus Christ. Christianity today either brings God so far down to our level that his transcendence is nonexistent, or God is considered so “other” that any encounter with him seems beyond the limits of human existence.— Theosis, Volume 2, page 178
