The Nature of God explores a perennial problem in the philosophy of religion. Drawing upon developments in philosophy, most notably those in philosophical logic, Edward R. Wierenga examines the traditional divine attributes of omnipotence, omniscience, eternity, timelessness, immutability, and goodness. His philosophically defensible formulations of the nature of God are in accord with the views of classical theists. The author provides an account of each of the divine attributes by stating in contemporary terms what such classical theists as Augustine, Anselm, and Aquinas wrote about the nature of God; he then seeks to determine whether one can defend the ascription of traditional divine attributes to God against philosophical objections.Clearly written and comprehensive, The Nature of God contains a wealth of illuminating and original material on a central topic in the philosophy of religion

MEDIA REVIEWS

"There is a fascinating and ongoing debate among analytic philosophers concerning the attributes of God and the relationship between God and the world. The discussion uses the tools of contemporary logic... to clarify and, hopefully, settle these issues. Wierenga's book is a substantial contribution to that debate.... It provides an overview of the twists and turns of contemporary discussion."
