Offsite Review: The Mystery of God: Theology for Knowing The Unknowable

The Mystery of God: Theology for Knowing the UnknowableI am continuing to read about the nature of God and specifically about the Trinity.  I picked up The Mystery of God: Theology for Knowning the Unknowable in early December and while I really liked it I put it down halfway through because I was just not in the mood for theology.  I have been reading mostly fiction lately.  I was about ready to pick it back up again and then I noticed this review that was posted this morning.  Louis Markos give a very positive review at Christianity Today’s website.

This portion of the review is toward the end, but I think gets the central point of the review.

Boyer and Hall set themselves a difficult course indeed, but they are able to stay on an orthodox course by reminding us of something too often forgotten in seminaries: namely, that theology must ever go hand in hand with worship. When we finally realize that God is not impersonal and unintelligible but radically personal and supra-intelligible, our proper response should not be to trade our theology for an empty pluralism that says all religious claims are equally valid, but to fall to our knees in praise of the Creator whose ways are not our ways and whose thoughts are not our thoughts.
