Kevin Giles traces the historic understanding of subordination in relation to the doctrine of the Trinity and investigates the closely related question of whether women are created to be permanently subordinated to men.
Founding his argument on a close reading of St. Augustine?s De Trinitate, Keith Johnson critiques four recent attempts to construct a pluralistic theology of religions out of the orthodox doctrine of the Trinity.
While offering cogent criticisms of the classical view of God, Donald G. Bloesch skillfully seeks to hold in faithful tension "the polarities that are reflected in God's nature and activity--his majesty as well as his vulnerability, his sovereignty as well as his grace, his wholly otherness as well as his unsurpassable closeness, his holiness as well as his love."
From the view that God does not intervene in the world to the view that God is the only effective agent in the working of his will, Terrance Tiessen identifies ten views of providence and adds his own.
Join Paul Helm, David Hunt, William Lane Craig and Gregory A. Boyd as they share four distinct views on the openness of God. Edited by James K. Beilby Paul R. Eddy.
In this eloquent meditation, Michael Knowles leads us progressively through the facets of God?s name as it is disclosed in Exodus 34:5-9. He sounds the depths of the passage in its original setting, listening for its echoes elsewhere in Scripture and in the rabbinic and Islamic traditions.
Paul Molnar adds to his previous work on the immanent Trinity to consider divine and human interaction in faith and knowledge within history. He begins with the role of faith in knowing God through his incarnate Word, and thus through the Holy Spirit, seeing divine freedom as the basis for true human freedom.
Stephen Holmes tells the saga of the Christian doctrine of God, hoping to provide some reflective distance on today's revival in Trinitarian studies. We witness the church's discovery of the doctrine from Scripture, its crucial patristic developments, its medieval and Reformation continuity and its fortunes since the advent of modernity.
Rarely does a new theological position emerge to account well for life in the world, including not only goodness and beauty but also tragedy and randomness. Drawing from Scripture, science, philosophy and various theological traditions, Thomas Jay Oord offers a novel theology of providence—essential kenosis—that emphasizes God's inherently noncoercive love in relation to creation.
In a world riddled with disappointment, malice and tragedy, what rationale do we have for believing in a benevolent God? In this book, John Stackhouse explores how great thinkers have grappled with this question--from Buddha, Confucius, Augustine, Hume and Luther to C. S. Lewis, eventually finding the best answer in the Christian promise of transformation.
