God is a personality

The Son of God suffers not only as Man but also as God. There are not only human, but also divine passions. God shares in the sufferings of men. God yearns for His other, for responsive love. God is not an abstract idea, nor abstract existence, elaborated by the categories of abstract tjought. God is a Being, a Personality.

-- Nikolai Berdyaev in Slavery and Freedom
