Eternal God

Paul Helm

Eternal God

Paul Helm

$56.99

Paperback
Many theologians and philosophers of religion now claim that the classical Christian view that God exists in timeless eternity is incoherent. Challenging that claim, Helm argues that divine timelessness is grounded in the idea of God as creator, and that this alone makes possible a proper^account of divine omniscience. He considers some of the consequences of divine timelessness, particularly as it affects both divine and human freedom, and examines some of the alleged problems about referring to God-- concluding with a connected treatment of the main concepts in philosophical^theology.

- Publisher Eternal God offers a powerful defence of the view that God exists in timeless eternity. This is the classical Christian view of God, but it is claimed by many theologians and philosophers of religion to be incoherent. Paul Helm rebuts the charge of incoherence, arguing that divine timelessness is grounded in the idea of God as creator, and that this alone makes possible a proper account of divine omniscience. He develops some of the consequences of divine timelessness, particularly as it affects both divine and human freedom, and considers some of the alleged problems about referring to God. The book thus constitutes a unified treatment of the main concepts of philosophical theology.
