Abstract:

The clamor of competition for the reconstruction of belief-systems has too often neglected older and more secure moorings. In a postmodern age that countenances individual belief-idiosyncracies and accords them sanctity ... the immediacy of God brings back into prominence a number of foundational issues by anchoring its thought structure in the basic apologetic presupposition that God is, and in the fundamental hermeneutical principle of divine covenantal purpose. The organizing core of the book's argument is its proposition regarding the immediacy of God in his being, his knowledge, his will, and his actions. Questions are raised that strike at the heart of the meaning of the divinely instituted redemptive process. Divine actions within that process are understood to be "immediate" rather than "mediate." Redemptive actions of God are "immediate' in the sense that no mediating causes exist between those actions and their effects and outcomes in the human condition.
