The rules as given are thus.

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five other people.

Here are sentences 5 to 7 of The Jesus of Suburbia:

But the Israelites couldn’t handle a God that awesome, and they set about, time and again, to reduce him to a more manageable size.

This has always been the temptation of the people of God – to tame him.  He increases mystery; we desire to remove it.

I tag Rambles and Shambles, Wings of Eagles, Nigel Coates, Jon Jolly and Deiknuo’s Blog.
