Building on analyses by HJ. Adriaanse and R. de Sousa, the authors try to show that the fact that God transcends human thought need not be an obstacle for the articulation of a rational theology. They distinguish between two criteria for evaluative rationality: material and formal rationality. Materially, God should be said to be perfectly rational; formally, however, God should be viewed as suprarationally irrational. However, this metaphysical assertion in no way reduces the logical rationality of God-talk, and only has limited implications for the epistemological rationality of our knowledge of God.
