I heard about this "open view" of God from people I care for deeply--and was a little worried about them. I read it because I wanted to understand what they were thinking. Little did I know that I too would see the biblical foundation for this view. God, to me, is now more powerful, interactive, and REAL! This is an exciting book that addresses many of the misconceptions that even Christians have about God.

Greg Boyd thankfully challenged my theology! I came away with a greater love for God and purpose in prayer!! Would love for all my Christian friends and family to at least read this book, whether they choose to accept this view or not. So many of my unanswered Scriptural questions finally satisfied! Thank you Greg Boyd!

Greg Boyd writes in an easy to understand way on a topic that can appear very complex. He sheds light on the Open View theory that has repetedly been misinterpreted. He uses a variety of scripture to present his case on this important issue. You don't want to pass up this book!

While I think the jury is justifiably still out on 'open theism,' I was extremely impressed with this book. I am impressed especially by Boyd's attention to the simple truths contained in the Bible. Thank goodness he doesn't waste time bogged down in more philosophical stuff than he does. Here's what the Bible says, here's what you can tell your kids...thanks, Greg! May God bless you as you struggle for acceptance against some close-minded folks!

Dr. Boyd examines many relevant biblical passages and explains how he understands them within an open view. A few helpful metaphors not menitioned in the _Openness of God_, but mostly a application of the theology in that book. Perfect for people who feel open theology doesn't read the Bible. This book is also helpful for people who like open theology, but have a few verses which confuse them.
