End of the Timeless God

«An important strength of Mullins' book is the depth of his research into historical treatments of divine timelessness; in this respect he surpasses most other critics of divine timelessness as well as many of its exponents... He has...compiled an impressive list of problems for divine timelessness, problems that need to be taken seriously by those who wish to defend that doctrine.»

The claim that God is timeless has been the majority view throughout church history. However, it is not obvious that divine timelessness is compatible with fundamental Christian doctrines such as creation and incarnation. Theologians have long been aware of the conflict between divine timelessness and Christian doctrine, and various solutions to these conflicts have been developed. In contemporary thought, it is widely agreed that new theories on the nature of time
can further help solve these conflicts. Do these solutions actually solve the conflict? Can the Christian God be timeless? The End of the Timeless God sets forth a thorough investigation into the Christian understanding of God and the God-world relationship. It argues that the Christian God cannot be
timeless.
