Quote for today

“Perhaps it is not the case that the West has failed to articulate a doctrine of deification, but that it has failed to understand the nature and function of theology, and to put the vision of deification properly to work. If so, Western theology ironically has neglected its own most important point: deification is doctrinally a constituent of the doctrine of God; and not fully to grasp the implications of this is to forestall and deactivate the fundamental task of theoria—redemptive insight into the perfection of divine esse”&—Nathan R. Kerr in Partakers of the Divine Nature, page 176
