Eternal God: A Study of God Without Time

Front Cover
Clarendon Press, 1988 - Religion - 230 pages
0 Reviews
Many theologians and philosophers of religion now claim that the classical Christian view that God exists in timeless eternity is incoherent. Challenging that claim, Helm argues that divine timelessness is grounded in the idea of God as creator, and that this alone makes possible a proper account of divine omniscience. He considers some of the consequences of divine timelessness, particularly as it affects both divine and human freedom, and examines some of the alleged problems about referring to God-- concluding with a connected treatment of the main concepts in philosophical theology.
