Both theology and philosophy wrestle with the tension between divine sovereignty and human responsibility. In Christianity, this tension is particularly acute because God is both omnipotent and benevolent.
This tension underlies numerous other questions about the nature of God, the meaning of free will and choice, the concept of divine repentance, the reign of God, and perhaps most of all, the significance of the incarnation.
Renowned scholar D.A. Carson brings clear insights and finely-honed exegetical skills to this important issue. In his treatment, the tension between divine sovereignty and human responsibility is not so much as a problem to be solved as a framework to be explored.
