Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Fretheim invites us to consider the full implications of what it means if God is truly in relationship with us and all creation. Knowing what the elements of a genuine, loving relationship are, what would it mean--in daily life and in times of suffering--if God's relationship with creation is genuine? Warm and full of care for the real concerns of people with questions about God, God So Enters into Relationships That . . . helps us access the rich resources of Scripture for life as it is actually lived." --Annie Edison-Albright, campus pastor, Luther College

"Fretheim argues that the God of the Bible is not an absentee landlord up in heaven or a controlling micromanager of every action or event in the world. Instead, the God of Scripture is in an intimate, complex and dynamic relationship of integrity and mutual interaction with the world, with Israel, and with all creatures. In the face of enormous contemporary challenges, Fretheim helps us see how the God of the Bible gives space for human initiative and creativity as well as hope in God's ultimate will and purpose for the world." --Dr. Dennis Olson, Charles T. Haley Professor of Old Testament Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary

"In this thoroughly researched gem of a book, Terry Fretheim gathers and advances a lifetime of ranking biblical scholarship. Moving through such theological themes as God's presence, power, and suffering, he guides the reader to matters of practice such as the place of prayer and the epistemic power of hope." --Dr. Paul Sponheim, professor emeritus, Luther Seminary

"Professor Fretheim pours decades of theological reflection into this magnificent volume on the relational God. Longtime readers of Fretheim know that his work shines brightest when it engages the God of the Old Testament. This book does precisely that, and with characteristic clarity and insight. I enthusiastically welcome the publication of this volume." --Dr. Michael Chan, professor, Luther Seminary

"The title says it all: start with God, move to a God known in relationships, and then.... That is, from there the matter is open-ended. No one portrayal will suffice, so Terry Fretheim provides and develops a list that actually is something of a summation of his biblical theology. This is Fretheim at his best, providing deep theological insight in a clear accessible style." --Dr. Fred Gaiser, professor emeritus, Luther Seminary
