One of the good quotes from Peter Rollins’ book…

"If we fail to recognize that the term "God" always falls short of that towards which the word is supposed to point, we will end up bowing down before our own conceptual creations forged from the raw materials of our self-image, rather than bowing before the one who stands over and above that creation.  Hence Meister Eckhart famously prays, "God rid me of God", a prayer that acknowledges how the God we are in relationship with is bigger, better and different than our understanding of that God." 
How Not to Speak of God, page 19.
