Item Description...
Overview
In imitation of classic tradition, Great is the Lord sets out the Christian doctrine of God in a way designed to illumine the mind, move the heart, and stir the soul to praise the triune God. Here, Ronald Highfield introduces students, ministers, and others to the doctrine of God held by the majority of the church from the second to the twentieth century. This traditional opinion reveals God to be triune, loving, merciful, gracious, patient, wise, one, simple, omnipotent, omniscient, eternal, omnipresent, immutable, impassible, and glorious. Highfield draws on scripture, tradition, and widely esteemed theologians to correct common misunderstandings and superficial criticisms. He examines the modern practice, even among evangelical or conservatives, of first rehearsing the shortcomings of "traditional" theological teaching and then claiming that classical doctrines paint God as uncaring, uninvolved, and a threat to human freedom. Great is the Lord revisits this classic doctrine so accused to discover that, far from being the creator of such an unpleasant god, it actually preserves our confidence in God's love and his liberating action better than its opponents do. That traditional doctrine, Highfield argues, grounds our dignity and freedom in the center of reality, the Trinitarian life of God. Highfield's work here maintains the highest intellectual standards, while offering a true theology for the praise of God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Uses logic to support the traditional view of God and His power  May 3, 2009
I found Dr. Highfield's book to be an engaging and insiteful read into the world of traditional theology. With my background in computer science, I especially appreciated the author's use of logic and reason to support the claims of God's power and ability to bridge the gap with humans with His unfailing love and mercy.
I highly recommend "Great is the Lord" for those seeking to support their faith with convincing proofs. You'll be inspired with renewed incentive for praise!
 
AMAZING BOOK! WONDERFUL AUTHOR!  Feb 7, 2009
Dr. Highfield is awesome! His insights into understanding theology as an act of worship to God has helped me immensely in my studies as as young theologian. I can't wait to read his next book! He is such an amazing man of God, and Pepperdine is blessed to have him as Professor of Religion!
