    God in Himself

    Scripture, Metaphysics, and the Task of Christian Theology

    Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture

Duby casts a vision for integrating natural theology, the incarnation, and metaphysics in a Christian description of God in himself .

    The God Who Trusts

    A Relational Theology of Divine Faith, Hope, and Love

    by Wm. Curtis Holtzen
    Foreword by John Sanders

    The Bible resounds with affirmations that God is faithful and trustworthy. But might he also exhibit faith and trust? Wm. Curtis Holtzen contends that because God is a being of relational love and exists in relationship with humans, then God is a God who trusts. Holtzen argues that understanding the relationship between divine trust and human faith can give us a fuller, truer picture of who God is and who we are.

    Divine Impassibility

    Four Views of God's Emotions and Suffering

    Spectrum Multiview Books

    Edited by Robert J. Matz and A. Chadwick Thornhill

    Does God suffer? Does God experience emotions? Does God change? This Spectrum Multiview volume brings together four theologians who make a case for their own view—ranging from a traditional affirmation of divine impassibility (the idea that God does not suffer) to the position that God is necessarily and intimately affected by creation—and then each contributor responds to the others' views.

    But What About God's Wrath?

    The Compelling Love Story of Divine Anger

    by Kevin Kinghorn
    With Stephen Travis

    How can a loving God also be a God of wrath? Using a philosophically informed line of argument and a careful study of the relevant biblical texts, Kinghorn and Travis show how these two aspects of God's character can be reconciled. Instead of assuming that God's just response to people is incompatible with a loving response, the authors instead view God's love as a strictly essential divine attribute, with justice as a derivative of love.

    Inexpressible

    Hesed and the Mystery of God's Lovingkindness

    by Michael Card

    God's identity cannot be fully expressed in human words, but Scripture uses one particular Hebrew word to describe God's character: hesed. Often translated as lovingkindness, covenant faithfulness, or steadfast love, Michael Card unpacks the many dimensions of hesed, exploring how it is used in the Old Testament to reveal God's character and how its fullness is ultimately embodied in the incarnation of Jesus.

    The Morals of the Story

    Good News About a Good God

    by David Baggett and Marybeth Baggett

    For centuries the moral argument—that objective morality points to the existence of God—has been a powerful apologetic tool. In this volume, David and Marybeth Baggett offer a dramatic, robust, and even playful version of the moral argument, showing that it not only points to God's existence but that it also contributes to our ongoing spiritual transformation.
