Paradox and Faith
When we are talking about God we cannot use language - God is bigger than language - instead we are working with metaphor - and sometimes a metaphor of powerlessness helps us understand more, and sometimes a metaphor of powerful does. All of these help us colour in our picture of God - or perhaps taking an apophatic path help us in removing bits that aren't in the picture!
Pete Rollins is very good on paradox in all his books
