More from my interview with Mathew Block, who asks how God uses our human imaginations to reach us.
CL: How does God use imagination to address humanity?
We believe in the Incarnation—that God became flesh. The Second Person of the Trinity became flesh, became a human being and dwelt among us [John 1:14]. God makes Himself tangible. He becomes one of us so that we can know Him. We also believe in His cross—that Jesus came and took into Himself the sins and sorrows of the world. He physically died for them and physically rose from the dead. The central tenet of Christianity then is about something very tangible.
I would add that God addresses our imagination by giving us His Word to read and hear, through human language. Reading engages our imagination more than anything else, since when we read narratives, descriptions, figures of speech, etc., we picture them in our minds, using the faculty of imagination. So God communicates with us, addressing all of our faculties, by giving us a Book.
