Ninety-Nine Stories of God

A book of absurdities imbued with a sense of great depth.

Three conclusions from three of my favorite stories in the book:

“We can only know what God is not, not what God is. We can never speak about God rationally, but that does not mean we should give up thinking. We must push our minds to the limits, descending even deeper into the unknowing.”

We cannot ‘know’ God.

“You should have changed if you wanted to remain yourself, but you were afraid to change.” – Sarte to Camus

We cannot ‘know’ ourselves.

“The God who is with us is the God who forsakes is. Before God and with God, we live without God.” – Bonhoeffer

Even when we connect with God, we are without him.

Reminds me of: ‘Testament‘ by Nino Ricci, ‘The Prophet‘ by Khalil Gibran, ‘Illusions‘ by Richard Bach
