The god we have

Anybody who simply cannot “put up” with the incarnation will also not know what to do with YHWH, who speaks and hears, who wounds and heals, who comes down and visits us, who walks in the garden and confuses the language of the tower builders, who accompanies his people in pillars of fire and cloud, who sits enthroned on the cherubim and precisely as such is the God of heaven and earth.—K. H. Miskotte, When the Gods are Silent, 128, quoted in Divine Doppelgängers: YHWH’s Ancient Look-Alikes, p. 112
