Product Description

If God is all-knowing and all-powerful, can he in any way be vulnerable to his creation?

Can God be in control of anything at all if he is not constantly in control of everything?

John Sanders mounts a careful and challenging argument for positive answers to both of these profound theological questions. In this thoroughly revised edition, Sanders clarifies his position and responds to his critics. His book will not only contribute to serious ongoing theological discussion but will enlighten pastors and laypersons who struggle with questions about suffering, evil and human free will.

Editorial Reviews

"[ The God Who Risks is] a major contribution to the dialogue between biblical and philosophical theology. John Sanders argues persuasively for belief in the God who risks and shows in detail that this view--in contrast to belief in the no-risk God--is consonant with the biblical tradition, conceptually coherent and able to account for the Christian life as a life of personal fellowship with God."

    Very in-depth read and study in regards to what God is in control of. Very good and honest examination of the biblical text.God says to Abraham, "*Now I know* that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son." {Genesis 22:12} Very intriguing when taken at face value. God (with Abe) found out something he wasn't sure of, sounds like humans have genuine "no-strings-attached" free will. Praise God!
