The Majesty of Mystery

Scott K Oliphint

$24.99

Paperback
The Majesty of Mystery encourages believers to embrace the profound mysteries at the heart of Christian faith. The Trinity, God's purposes, the incarnation, the resurrection, God's work and human effort in salvation--none of these are problems to be explained away or puzzles to be dismissed as irrelevant. Rather, these are grand mysteries, not contradictory but paradoxical and wonderful, ultimately leading us to worship the incomprehensible God who faithfully reveals himself to us.

Excellent, with minor caution!
5 stars By Wally Bocos, Jun 12 2018
The lifeblood of our walk with God is mystery!

Oliphint begins by directing our knowledge of God to its rightful end, the glory of God. 

Oliphint speaks into the rationalising of God; the stripping of God's mystery to fit our understanding of God within our intellectual capacities? This should not be! Oliphint careful elucidates the concepts of God while allowing the incomprehensible God to remain with some mystery. Rather than falling into desperation that God is incomprehensibly mysterious, this reality to should make us fall down to worship!

I need to give a minor caution. When discussing God's immutability Oliphint seems to sway from classical theism and to loosen God's simplicity. Oliphint considers God immutable, yes, and also holds to God's aseity, yes. However, his discussion of God "beginning" a relational interaction with His creation implies a creaturely affect upon God! That said, the book is excellent and well worth the read. 

Excellent
