James Carroll, in Christ Actually: The Son of God for the Secular Age (NY: Viking, 2014):
Whatever sort of God Jesus is understood to be, it must be the God who is like humans, not different. If that seems impossible, then what we think of God—and of humans— must change. . . . If Christ is undiscovered now, a figure lost to many, that is in part because of scandals done in his name, by those who call out his name most loudly.
