Dr. Jack Cottrell’s book What the Bible Says About God the Ruler talks about how God is present and active in our world . . . and that such a concept is absent from many world religions/philosophies.
To this point, he quotes (on p. 15 in the edition I have) a guy named Harry Blamires, who is pondering what would happen when an intelligent Buddhist is first introduced to Christianity. This Mr. Blamires, writing in 1957, said that what the Buddhist would notice as so unique is “not that this is a God of love: not that this is a God of self-sacrifice: but that this is a God who does things.”
