Traditionally, evangelical theology has been committed to a position of classical theism, emphasizing God's immutability and omniscience. Of late, traditional affirmations have been challenged by theologians who affirm a more christological focus (often drawing from Karl Barth's theology) and by those who affirm a theology of "open theism."

The essays gathered in this collection give evidence of the depth and creativity of contemporary evangelical theology as well as the variety of positions held by those within the movement. Part one focuses on New Testament studies and the earliest development of a Christian doctrine of God. Part two considers two figures who have widely influenced evangelical theology. Part three considers opinions on the cross, the suffering and sovereignty of God, and the contemporary debate, and part four concludes with a chapter on theology and pastoral care.

The contributors provide readers with a stimulating guide to the contemporary debate. Contributors include: The Lamb that was slain--David F. Wright Christian origins and the Question of God--N. T. Wright, The Wrath of God--D. A. Carson, John Calvin and the Hiddenness of God--Paul Helm, Jonathan Edwards' God: The Trinity, Individuation and Divine Simplicity'--Oliver D. Crisp, Life in and of himself: reflections on God's aseity--John Webster, God and the cross --Henri A. Blocher, Divine compassion: Exodus 34:5-9 in the Light of Exodus 32-34--Pierre Berthoud, The sovereignty of God--Stephen N. Williams, The actuality of God: Karl Barth in Conversation with open theism--Bruce L. McCormack, The pastoral implications of our doctrine of God.--Donald Macleod Both scholars and clergy will find that these essays represent the entire range of thought within the evangelical tradition.
