Reviews - What do customers think about God and the Ways of Knowing?

The Mystical Ways of Knowing  Sep 3, 2005
"He is what we say, and yet He is not. He is all that is and nothing that is." Dionysius Pseudo-Areopagite.

Human Experience of God:
In the early Church, and the sayings of the Desert Fathers, Theognosis, the mystical experience of God started with Clement and Origen's writings, and culminated in the mystical theology of Dionysius Pseudo-Areopagite.
Recently, Catholics were confronted with the task of recovering the mystical approach. Karl Rahner, has enhanced Catholic theologians to move back into this direction, evident in his book; "Encounters With Silence"

Speaking of God:
"For He is always unknown, He is always paradoxically, well known." Danielou adds; "Emmanuel Berl said recently that he had never met an atheist, only men who believe in God, without knowing exactly what they believe."
This applies very well to our beloved and dear brothers and sisters, heirs to the faith of our common father Abraham. The Loving Father, Lord Adonai, Allah or Elohim was made known to us through and in his Only begotten Son."It is true that all we say of Him seems utterly unworthy, in comparison with what He is; and accordingly we fear that what we say may conceal more than it reveals of His nature, and may be more of a hindrance than a help. We should wish, too, after everything we have said, to say the opposite. Because at one and the same time it seems that all we say of Him is true, and also untrue." Danielou's foreword

Danielou's Themes:
Quoting Karl Barth, the Neo-Orthodoxy Protestant Swiss theologian's saying; "Only God speaks of God." The knowledge seeking Cardinal, elaborates on his talented gift of clear logical exposition, his essay in six chapters:
1. the God of the religions
2. the God of the philosophers
3. the God of the faith
4. the God of Jesus Christ
5. the God of the Church
6. the God of the mystics

Late Cardinal Danielou
The French Jesuit patristic scholar, was a major devotee in the movement that championed the liberation of pre Vatican Papal Roman Church to the today Catholic Church, through reintroducing the early Church Father's mysticism of the eastern Church of Origen, Evagrius, and p-Dionysius.
Enlightened Cardinal Jean Danielou, an Orthodox Catholic, was a champion of the "Nouvelle Theologie," Peritus of Vatican II, who participated in the renewal of the major part of the universal Church, not limited by space or time. This is a fruit of what 'Abba Danielou' learned from the Church fathers.
