The I Am, Not the He Was

If God ever spoke, He is still speaking.  If He has ever been in mutual and reciprocal communication with the persons He has made, He is still a communicating God as eager as ever to have listening and receptive souls.  If there is something of His image and superscription in our inmost structure and being, we ought to expect a continuous revelation of His will and purpose through the ages....  He is the Great I Am, not a Great He Was.

- Rufus M. Jones, 1948
