God is No Abstract Diety

In the covenant, God binds himself to a specific people, places and things.  He is not an abstract deity worshiped by some as Yahweh and by others as Allah, the Great Spirit or the Benign Providence mentioned by many of America’s founders.  Rather, he is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel, the God who dwells in Zion – and the God who became flesh in the virgin’s womb.
