  • This is a hefty (800-plus pages) volume on the Doctrine of God, or what traditionally is called Theology Proper. Feinberg approaches the study of God from an evangelical perspective, upholding the inerrancy of Scripture. But he frames his discussion in the light of more recent theological systems, including process theology and open theism. He believes that some people are drawn to those theologies because they present a view of a God who is more responsive to human beings. He believes that an o [...]


  • Melted my brain at times. This book was extremely thorough and thought-provoking. I am confident I will re-visit this book from time to time in order to get a more firm grasp on some of the concepts discussed.


  • This is a fantastic evangelical tome on theology proper by Trinity Evangelical Divinity School's John S. Feinberg. The material is rich, spanning historical theology to contemporary theological discourse. Albeit I didn't agree with all of Feinberg's conclusions, this book was wonderful to go through and will make a fantastic resource henceforth. Feinberg writes from a Reformed perspective, albeit he affirms God's middle knowledge and hence draws a comparabilist scheme that is near akin to Molini [...]


  • Enormously helpful book in evaluating the classical conception of an atemporal, philosophically immutable (in the sense of having no ability to experience relationships) God. Feinberg bravely (and meticulously) modifies that picture, while decisively rejecting the process or open theist views of God that also react against the classical conception. I'm not smart enough to know if Feinberg succeeds, but I found the resolutions compelling.Four stars rather than five because the discussion is so me [...]


  • Feinberg gives a masterful overview of the core issues pertaining to the doctrine of God. While this reader did not share some of Feinberg's conclusions, his precision in systematizing his theology was impeccable. Feinberg advocates a mild-Calvinism with a Molinist twist that greatly resembles the congruist position of Millard Erickson. Especially powerful were the attributes of God listed by Feinberg and the section on the problem of evil, which was masterfully portrayed. This 800+ page book is [...]


  • Simply excellent. Though it can be used as a reference book and is known for certain brilliant strands, reading it cover-to-cover gives access to the whole fabric of Feinberg's vision of God--and it is breathtaking. That said, certain portions were especially strong: the chapter on God, time and eternity, and the final chapters addressing predestination, freedom, foreknowledge, and the problem of evil. Reading this book was an incredibly rich and sanctifying experience for me, and I'll be sure t [...]


  • This is one of the most comprehensive volumes that I have ever encountered in any subject. This is truly as masterful work by Feinberg. Trinity, creation, attributes's all there. What I really love about this book, however, is the fact that Feinberg deals with all of the opposing views surrounding the varying doctrinal issues. This enables to reader to understand the fullness of the conversation and have all of the information needed to draw biblical conclusions.


  • This is actually a sort of dense read. Feinburg is a theologian and philosopher and as such goes into great detail into the logical ends of certain trains of thought. Overall a good book that took me a while to get used to reading. His case for a compatabilistic specific sovereignty model is good. For the serious reader only.


  • A hefty book from the broader evangelical world (and a baptistic flavored version at that) this is a good book. Compared to Grudem or Erickson, this book is much better refreshing etc. But still suffers from the deficiencies of being broadly or generically evangelical.


  • An amazing wealth of carefully thought through information. An excellent and much needed work on the doctrine of God that mediates between the Classical view of God and the Process and Open views of God. Feinberg ably points us to the King who cares.


  • Clearly one of the most academic reads in the area of Theology Proper. If Knowing God is for everyone, this is for those in advanced studies.


  • Just because something is new doesn't mean it's better. That is the attitude of this book as it sets on stage the classical view of the Doctrine of God.


  • Good overview of the theology of God and the doctrine of God without getting bogged down in areas of speculation.
