Author: Gregory E Ganssle; David M Woodruff
Publisher: Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2002.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
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.

   schema:description "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."@en ;
   schema:description "In "God and Time", Gregory E. Ganssle and David Woodruff have brought together 12 previously unpublished essays from leading philosophers on God's relation to time.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)."@en ;
