contending for thoughtful Christianity

God, part 3: Greek or Hebrew?

Have you ever stopped to think about how your conception of God is shaped by historical theologies? Most people, including Christians, haven't. In reality, our understanding of the divine being has been influenced by millenia of thought, and not all of it is biblical.
