What is the nature of God and how does He relate to the world He has made?
These questions are irresistible to ponder. The Bible says, "For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counselor? Or who has ever first given to Him, and has to be repaid? Fro from Him and through Him and to Him are all things" (Romans 11:34-36a, Holman CSB).
Perspectives on the Doctrine of God presents in counterpoint form how certain common beliefs about the doctrine of God and His providence--e.g. infinite all-knowingness, transcendence of time and space, love and sensitivity for His creation--have developed over the course of church history, aiming to determine which view is most faithful to Scripture.
