Your God Is Too Small

…many otherwise honest and intellectual people will construct a neat by-pass around the claim of Jesus to be God.  Being people of insight and imagination, they know perfectly well that once to accept such a claim as fact would mean a readjustment of their own purposes and values and affections which they may have no wish to make.  To call Jesus the greatest Figure in History or the finest Moral Teacher the world has ever seen commits no one to anything.  But once to allow the startled mind to accept as fact that this man is really focused-God may commit anyone to anything!  There is every excuse for blundering in the dark, but in the light there is no cover from reality.  — J.B. Phillips, Your God Is Too Small, p 83
