Overview

Many contemporary theologians claim that the classical picture of God painted by Augustine and Aquinas is both outmoded and unbiblical. But rather than abandoning the traditional view completely, John Feinberg seeks a reconstructed model—one that reflects the ongoing advances in human understanding of God's revelation while recognizing the unchanging nature of God and His Word. Feinberg begins by exploring the contemporary concepts of God, particularly the openness and process views, and then studies God's being, nature, and acts—all to articulate a mediating understanding of God not just as the King, but the King who cares!

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"This book contains some rare combinations: first, an author who is as concerned with conceptual clarification as he is with the absolute truthfulness of the biblical text; second, an argument that avoids the common "either-ors" and contends for the importance of both divine sovereignty and divine solicitude in equal measure; third, an approach that espouses divine determinism and divine temporality. No One Like Him takes on the most intractable intellectual challenges of contemporary evangelical theology."
Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"John Feinberg judicially reconstructs aspects of the classical view of God in a way that proves more faithful than process and openness of God theisms. Arguably, this is the best study of theology proper in print."
Bruce Demarest, Professor of Theology and Spiritual Formation, Denver Seminary

"Feinberg reads theology with a philosopher's eye and writes it with a philosopher's sensitivity to illogic and incoherence."
J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College

"A magisterial work, one that truly deserves to be called a magnum opus. . . . It reveals its author as . . . perhaps the only modern scholar whose work, like that of Carl. F. H. Henry, can compare in size, detail, comprehensiveness, and intellectual acuity with the accomplishments of the late Karl Barth. . . . It is not risky to predict that Feinberg's No One Like Him will come to be a milestone in evangelical theology."
Harold O. J. Brown, Professor Emeritus of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
