If faith makes up the living relation with a God who is not knowable as such, then we may find no better approach to the phenomenality of God than in some consideration of what that life proves capable of, and indeed incapable of. Among the essential fields of inquiry must be our engagement with things. Might there be something distinctive about how the believer dwells or works or eats? And might this tell us something about his or her relation with the unknowable God?
