Quotes from Hauerwas

"Mystery does not name a puzzle that cannot be solved. Rather, 'mystery' names that which we know, but the more we know, the more we are forced to rethink everything we think we know."

"It is my conviction that explanations, that is, the attempts to make Jesus conform to our understanding of things, cannot help but domesticate and tame the wildness of the God we worship as Christians."
