Abstract:

Like Adam and Eve, we stand naked before God. With Moses, we cannot see God's glory and live. Like thousands who seek a chatty, chummy God, we miss out on his transcendence. With Isaiah, intimacy with God can plunge us into "a humbling predicament". In short, getting close to God without carefully defining who he is, without knowing whether he can be approached at all, and without understanding how to approach him is an immense risk, Horton contends.
