The doctrine of God is receiving renewed and vigorous attention among theologians. Even a cursory examination of recent scholarship reveals what leading evangelical theologian Donald Bloesch describes as "a mounting controversy over the concept of God. " God is variously portrayed as vulnerable (Jurgen Moltmann, Clark Pinnock), as lover (Norman Pittenger, Ronald Goetz), as friend (Alfred North Whitehead, Sallie McFague) and as empowerer (Rosemary Radford Ruether). Bloesch agrees that many of these proposals have some biblical merit. But what is lacking, he argues, "is a strong affirmation of the holiness and almightiness of God. " In God The Almighty: Power, Wisdom, Holiness, Law Bloesch offers cogent criticisms and corrective insights on both classical and recently advanced views of God. He 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.
