Discerning the Divine: God in Christian Theology

An ideal introduction to Christian theology, Discerning the Divine presents the doctrine of God as the most important subject in Christian believing and living. Chapters discuss the complex God question and the task of Christian theology.

Exploring the many-faceted doctrine of God from multiple angles, Callen reaffirms its pre-eminence in Christian theology. Topics of discussion include the deeply moved “First Mover”; the theistic quest; the tensions between “domesticating the Deity” and “letting God be God”; and Divine revelation in history, including near-death experiences and God’s presence in suffering and marginalization.
