Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Clearly written, carefully argued, and theoretically sophisticated....A solid contribution to the published literature and its arguments deserve critical scrutiny. I recommend it to anyone interested in the ongoing debate about the nature of God."--The Journal of Religion

"A welcome and stimulating treatment of the problem of God's timelessness....Very thorough and carefully argued while remaining largely free of technical jargon and formal notation. This is a very clear and accessible book."--Review of Metaphysics

"Eternal God is clearly written and discusses a wide range of relevant literature....interesting and provocative."--Faith and Philosophy
