This work examines how God interacts with his world and offers a more thorough exegetical treatment than previous studies of this subject.
For centuries God's existence and the believability of miracles has been debated. Here C. John Collins provides a thorough exegetical foundation for discussing God's action in the world while offering a concise examination of the philosophical, theological, scientific, and apologetic questions that it raises. This extensive work contrasts the options within traditional Christian theism and presents powerful evidence that it is intellectually responsible for us to embrace the biblical view of God's action in the world.
