“The kenosis of God creates the possibility of a human subject very different from the consumer self. The absolute uniqueness of Christ cannot be subsumed under any more general categories of being. If God is God, then God must always be beyond our comprehension: si comprehendis non est Deus. We are, nevertheless, invited to participate in the Trinitarian life through Christ and the work of the Spirit. But in order to do so, we cannot grasp, we can only submit. We cannot stand back from the world and survey it; we must simply take our role in the drama that God is staging and give ourselves to it.”
–William T. Cavanaugh, Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2008), 81.
