Is Your God too Small?

"If there is a God, it's going to be a whole lot bigger and a whole lot more incomprehensible than anything that any theologian of any religion has ever proposed." - Richard Dawkins

Are we as Christians talking about God in the right way?

"Richard Dawkins, has just come out with The God Delusion (Houghton Mifflin), the rare volume whose position is so clear it forgoes a subtitle. The five-week New York Times best seller (now at No. 8) attacks faith philosophically and historically as well as scientifically, but leans heavily on Darwinian theory, which was Dawkins' expertise as a young scientist and more recently as an explicator of evolutionary psychology so lucid that he occupies the Charles Simonyi professorship for the public understanding of science at Oxford University."

Read an interesting exchange between Richard Dawkins and Francis Collins (theist) here.
By the way, I wonder what Dawkins would say to this. - This, I believe, is how we need to talk.
