Knowledge vs. Knowing

…yet interest in theology, and knowledge about God, and the capacity to think clearly and talk well on christian themes, is not all the same thing as knowing him. We may know as much about God as Calvin knew-indeed, if we study his works dilligently, sooner or later we shall-and yet all the time (unlike Calvin, may I say) we may hardly know God at all.
