Helpful Books on Open Theism

In recommendations, reviews, theology on December 6, 2008 at 10:28 pm

As some of you may know, I have been working on a pretty extensive research paper on Open Theism for my Doctrine of God class.  There are many great books out there, but I’ve found three relatively different books to be incredibly helpful.

  1. God’s Lesser Glory – Bruce A. Ware:  A thorough argument against the denial of God’s exhaustive foreknowledge.
  2. What Does God Know and When Does He Know It? – Millard J. Erickson:  Erickson affirms the traditional view, but this is probably the most fair treatment of both sides of the debate.
  3. What Does God Foreknow? – Steven C. Roy:  A comprehensive biblical survey of pretty much every section of Scripture related to the debate.  Roy displays the glorious sovereignty of God over the future shining brightly through Scripture.
