God and Time: Four Views (Book/ Paperback)

by Paul Helm, Alan G. Padgett, William Lane Craig, Nicholas Wolterstorff

Product Overview

The eternal God has created the universe. And that universe is time-bound. How can we best understand God's relationship with our time-bound universe? For example, does God experience each moment of time in succession or are all times present to God? How we think of God and time has implications for our understanding of the nature of time, the creation of the universe, God's knowledge of the future, God's interaction with his creation and the fullness of God's life.

In this book, four notable philosophers skillfully take on this difficult topic--all writing from within a Christian framework yet contending for different views.

  • Paul Helm argues that divine eternity should be construed as a state of
    absolute timelessness.

  • Alan G. Padgett maintains that God's eternity is more plausibly to be
    understood as relative timelessness.

  • William Lane Craig presents a hybrid view that combines timelessness
    with omnitemporality.

  • Nicholas Wolterstorff advocates a doctrine of unqualified divine

Each essay is followed by responses from the other three contributors and a final counter-response from the original essayist, making for a lively exchange of ideas. Editor Gregory E. Ganssle provides a helpful introduction to the debate and its significance. Together these five scholars conduct readers on a stimulating and mind-stretching journey into one of the most controversial and challenging areas of theology today.
