God Beyond All Names
As I meditate on the book What Is God I remind myself of St. Augustine's saying that, when we think we know God, then what we know is not God. Even in any healthy human relationship we always want to know and understand the person better. If we want to have a healthy relationship with God it is crucial that we keep growing in our knowledge and understanding of The Divine. We each grow at our own pace.
In thinking about The Divine we are always limited to analogy and metaphor. The more comfortable we get with ambiguity, the more we want to know how to think about The Divine.
