Item Description...
Throughout the history of philosophical theology, scholars have reflected on the relationship between God and time. In the Western religious tradition, God has been thought to be eternal, in the sense that God is outside time. But many thinkers today hold that while God is everlasting, in that there was no beginning to God's existence nor will he ever cease existing, God exists within Time.
In God and Time, Gregory E. Ganssle and David Woodruff have brought together 12 previously unpublished essays from leading philosophers on God's relation to time. Including work from today's most prominent thinkers in this fascinating field, God and Time represents the current state of the discussion between those who believe God to be atemporal (experiencing everything in the "eternal now") and those who believe God to be temporal (experiencing events sequentially, somewhat as we do).
This collection highlights such issues as how the nature of time is relevant to the question of whether God is temporal and how God's other attributes are compatible with his mode of temporal being. By focusing on the metaphysical aspects of time and temporal existence, God and Time makes a unique contribution to the current resurgence of interest in philosophical theology in the analytic tradition.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The only negative is the price.  Feb 1, 2009
This is an excellent collection of essays on God and the philosophy of time. The editors did a great job at finding solid representatives of the various positions that philosophical theologians have and are currently defending. The various contributors seek to explore some of the following questions. Is God timeless? Is God temporal? What is time? Is time static or dynamic? Can an Incarnate God be timeless? Can a timeless God know what time it is now?

I should also mention that there are two essays that do not explicitly deal with God's relation to time. William Lane Craig's paper on the Special Theory of Relativity argues that Newton's concept of absolute time has not been done away with by Einstein. Quintin Smith's interesting essay is sort of an atheistic Kalam cosmological argument for the non-existence of God.

This is not an introductory book, and I would not recommend it for students who do not have any previous knowledge about the issues discussed here. I would first recommend reading Ganssle's "Thinking About God", Thomas Morris' "Our Idea of God", or perhaps some other introduction to philosophy of religion before trying to work through this book.
