How Much Does God Foreknow?

Steven C Roy

$65.00

Paperback
Steven C. Roy provides a comprehensive review of biblical teaching, from both Old and New Testaments, which provides the basis for critically engaging today's philosophical and theological debates.

- Publisher Does the Bible teach that God's foreknowledge is exhaustive and infallible?Does Scripture affirm that God foreknows the free decisions of human beings?Current debates over the extent of God's foreknowledge, argues Steven C. Roy, have not given sufficient consideration to the complete biblical revelation. Seeking to correct this imbalance, Roy provides in-depth studies of dozens of key passages in both the Old and the New Testaments. Cognizant of the current debates between classical notions of divine foreknowledge and more recent "openness" views, Roy interacts incisively with their respective theological positions and draws out implications of biblical teaching for the practical matters of Christian worship, prayer, guidance, suffering and evil, and ultimate hope in the triumph of God.
