Perhaps no theological topic is more hotly debated within evangelical Christianity these days than God's foreknowledge. Is the future exhaustively settled, or does it include possibilities (maybes)? In encountering such questions, a growing number of evangelicals are becoming dissatisfied with the classical view of foreknowledge and have accepted an alternative, open view of God. In God of the Possible theologian Greg Boyd offers an accessible introduction to the freewill theism position. Boyd begins by laying out and critiquing the "motif of future determinism," which forms the basis of the classical view of foreknowledge. He goes on to explicate several scripture passages that depict the future as partially open and that God therefore knows it as such. He then discusses some practical areas in which he thinks the open view can make a positive difference. Finally, Boyd addresses the most frequently asked questions and typical objections raised against the open view. An appendix explores other passages supporting the open view of God and the future. Exploring issues of foreknowledge, freedom, and the future, Boyd presents biblical, theological, and philosophical insights into the openness issue in this introductory, yet provocative, book. While geared particularly for a lay readership, more advanced students of theology will also benefit from his presentation.
Why did God tell Hezekiah he would die, then add fifteen years to his life?
If God knows certain people will go to hell, why does he create them?
Does God foreknow the outcome of every decision we will ever make?
In this accessible but provocative book, Gregory Boyd responds to the traditional answers to these questions with an alternative open view of the future. Combining a theologian's intellect with a pastor's heart, he approaches his topic with grace toward his opponents and enthusiasm for the way this new thinking has revolutionized his life.
