Hiding in plain sight

In style as well as content, the biblical literature invokes a God who is relentlessly present but whose actions are characteristically disguised, with the result that the arena of human experience is full of beckoning coincidences: “Truly you are a God who hides yourself, O God of Israel, the Savior” (Isa 45:15).—Stephen B. Chapman in Divine Doppelgängers: YHWH’s Ancient Look-Alikes, 196
