Product Description

Christians throughout history have been strengthened by their confidence that God knows everything about the future. But consider this: What if it simply is not true? What if God can only rely on His best guess about tomorrow--just as you and I do? Would it not affect your trust in Him, your confidence in facing the future, your worship, and your motivation to leave everything in His hands? And yet this is the consequence that has to be faced if you trust what a number of leading voices in evangelicalism are proposing under the doctrine of open theism. In its redefinition of the nature of divine providence, open theism adjusts the entire picture of God's sovereignty and involvement in our lives. Bruce Ware carefully summarizes and critiques this dangerous doctrine from a thoroughly biblical perspective, providing an excellent treatment of both the classical and openness views. He explores their implications and faithfully pinpoints the subtle ways that open theism undermines our trust in God and lessens His glory in our lives.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Bruce A. Ware
Located in: Louisville, KY
Submitted: December 23, 2000

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have the privilege of teaching theology at a marvelous seminary (Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY -- see www.sbts.edu). My deepest desire and passion over my years of teaching is for my students to know and cherish God. This is life: to know Him and find in Him our deepest hope and joy.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The open view of God greatly diminishes God's knowledge, wisdom, power, majesty, and through all this, His glory. Further, this view cannot but lead thoughtful Christian people to doubt, not trust, this unsure god. Despite its popular appeal, the god of open theism is not the God of the Bible, and it is the burden of this book to demonstrate this claim.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  In brief, two 'W's: First, a warning -- that open theism is trendy, dishonoring to God, harmful to faith, and wrong. Second, worship -- that the God of the Bible, the God Christians have believed and worshiped over the centuries, is glorious and worthy of our uncompromising allegiance, hope, and love.
