A word from Pete Rollins

…revelation is often treated as if it can be deciphered into a dogmatic system rather than embraced as the site where the impenetrable secret of God transforms us.  In the former, revelation is rendered into an eloquent doctrine, while in the latter, revelation is that which transforms. We are like an infant in the arms of God, unable to grasp but being transformed by the grasp.  Revelation can thus be described as bringing to light the secret of God in such a way that it remains secret.  God is thus the secret who remains concealed in the sharing. (from How (Not) to Speak of God, p.17)
