“At school, religion was taught from the Bible. Everyone read the Bible. I did so with a sense that is was especially mine. I had a strange conception of God, I thought him a charming and witty character with a ready answer, and a lot of conflicting sides to his nature. I liked God, especially in his sophisticated moments, as when he spoke to Moses out of the burning bush, and Moses enquired his name, and God replied, ‘I am who I am.’
That was a good answer, it inspired personal awe as well as purely technical admiration.”
