In God the Father Almighty, Erickson develops a sturdy exposition of the doctrine of God, beginning with an introductory discussion of the doctrine’s importance. He then interacts extensively with criticisms brought against the traditional view of God by pluralism, process theology, and free will theism. After evaluating the positive and negative elements in each of these views, Erickson offers a fresh analysis of the attributes of God in light of Scripture and the contemporary scene. Erickson concludes that a proper understanding of God is foundational for both theology and Christian living.
God the Father Almighty: A Contemporary Exploration of the Divine Attributes is perfect for scholars, pastors, students, and theologians.
