Stephen Williams on Theophany and Incarnation

No experience seems religiously higher than theophany until theophany gives way to incarnation and to the possibility of knowing Jesus Christ. Theophany might be universally possible, but it does not save. The particularity of incarnation will.

  1. I had to look up the meaning of 'theophany' but I'm so glad I did because that is a beautiful quote!
