Product Description

God never changes. Or does he? God has been getting a makeover of late, a "reinvention"that has incited debate and troubled scholars and laypeople alike. Modern theological sectors as diverse as radical feminism and the newopen theism movement are attacking the classical Christian view of God and vigorously promoting their own images of Divinity. This book refutes the claim that major attributes of the God of historic Christianity are false and outdated and responds to some increasingly popular alternate theologies and the ways in which they cast classical Christian theism in a negative light.

Featuring an impressive cast of world-class biblical scholars, philosophers, and apologists, God Under Fire begins by addressing the question"Should the God of Historic Christianity Be Replaced?"From there, it explores issues as old as time and as new as the inquest into theopennes of God.How, for instance, does God risk, relate, emote, and change? Does he do these things, and if so, why? These and other questions are investigated with clarity, bringing serious scholarship into popular reach. Above all, this collection of essays focuses on the nature of God as presented in the Scriptures and as Christians have believed for centuries. God Under Fire builds a solid and appealing case for the God of classical Christian theism, who in recent years, as through the centuries, has been the God under fire.
