The Apophatic Quality of Theological Speech

The more positively God reveals Himself—the more He posits about Himself—the more apophatic our theology becomes. If, on our own and supported only by the testimony of our conscience and the created order, our talk about God bears am apophatic quality, what shall we say about the full light of the Gospel, in which the one God reveals Himself as the Father of a co-eternal, co-infinite, and consubstantial Son?
