THE MYSTERY OF GOD by Steven D. Boyer and Christopher A. Hall explores the nature of God in that he cannot be completely known. He's a mystery, but not one that can be unraveled.
The authors recognize that God has revealed many things about himself to us, but at the same time, there is much about him that can't be knowable. And even what we know of God isn't knowledge in a way that we know other things. God is infinitely unique, and we must approach him with the humility that we are incredibly limited in our ability to understand him. This concept of mystery is then applied to some of the most difficult Scriptural concepts to understand. Mystery helps us to understand that concepts like the Trinity, the incarnation, and prayer don't have to be contradictory.
THE MYSTERY OF GOD is a call to pursue a God who is both transcendent and immanent, and it is the call to trust him as the one who knows all when we don't.
