Paradox of the Incarnation

"...there can be no getting around the essential paradoxicality of the Christian confession of Christ as Lord. 'Take away paradox from a thinker,' Soren Kierkegaard once quipped, 'and you have a professor.' Transposed into Christology, we may paraphrase the line as: 'Take away paradox from a theologian, and you have a heretic.'"

This quote is from the book Infinity Dwindled to Infancy by Edward T. Oakes (page 15).
