Robert Furney5 Stars Out Of 5April 2, 2002Robert FurneyI have been reading [i]Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard[/i] and strongly recommend it to all interested in Open Theism. It is not an apologetic on open theism, but rather Paul Borgman uses it while expositing various aspects of Genesis. Apparently, he came to open theism independent of other popular theologians and mentions the fact that while putting the finishing touches on the book he came across John Sander's [i]The God Who Risks[/i].Borgman emphasizes God's relations with Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph and shows how God mends them to bring about his ultimate desire of blessing all nations. Abraham's will is brought about by a long relationship with God over many trials, tests, and years to what God's will is. There is no manipulation here.You will find the author's grasp of Genesis quite compelling and entertaining. He has studied it for over 25 years before writing this book. And he believes, as I do, that narration as a genre reveals aspects of God that poetry, wisdom, and didactic portions of Scripture cannot.
