Knowing God

Geology is knowledge about the Earth, Astronomy is knowledge about the Universe, so Theology is knowledge about God, right? Well, not in so many words, it seems.

* We live in a knowledge-based civilization, and we know it. If we don’t get this right, we have no message for our world. (Our silence is deafening).

* Theology has always known it is talking about the ultimate mystery, and must do so in the humblest of terms. Can the clay describe the potter?

* Yet the biblical writers generally depict knowledge of God as not only attainable but essential for human well-being and authenticity.

* What sort of “knowledge” are they and we talking about? It is a broad concept.

* Is knowledge of God personal, collective, or both?

* Christian knowledge of God has a trinitarian structure.
