Item description for God the Almighty: Power, Wisdom, Holiness, Love (Christian Foundations) by Donald G. Bloesch...

Overview
The doctrine of God is receiving renewed and vigorous attention in theology. Even a cursory examination of recent scholarship reveals what leading evangelical theologian Donald Bloesch describes as "a mounting controversy over the concept of God."

God is variously portrayed as vulnerable (Jurgen Moltmann, Clark Pinnock), as lover (Norman Pittenger, Ronald Goetz), as friend (Alfred North Whitehead, Sallie McFague) and as empowerer (Rosemary Radford Ruether). Bloesch agrees that many of these proposals have some biblical merit. But what is lacking, he argues, "is a strong affirmation of the holiness and almightiness of God."

So in this volume, while Bloesch offers cogent criticisms of the classical view of God, he skillfully seeks to hold in faithful tension "the polarities that are reflected in God's nature and activity---his majesty as well as his vulnerability, his sovereignty as well as his grace, his wholly otherness as well as his unsurpassable closeness, his holiness as well as his love."

Donald G. Bloesch (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is professor of theology emeritus at Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. He has done postdoctoral work at the universities of Oxford, Tubingen and Basel and has written numerous books. He is also a past president of the Midwest Division of the American Theological Society.

Donald G. Bloesch (1928 2010) was a noted American evangelical theologian. From 1957 until his retirement in 1992, he was a professor of theology at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he continued as a professor emeritus. For more than forty years, he published scholarly yet accessible works that generally defend traditional Protestant beliefs and practices while seeking to remain in the mainstream of modern Protestant theological thought. He characterized himself a progressive evangelical or Ecumenical orthodox, criticizing the excesses of both the theological left and right. Bloesch s pietistic background and personal spiritual life lay at the heart of understanding his theology.

Reviews - What do customers think about God the Almighty: Power, Wisdom, Holiness, Love (Christian Foundations)?

Quite Good  Oct 30, 2001
This is the third volume of Bloesch's projected seven part systematic theology. He offers a useful discussion of some of the newer theories of God such as those of process theology. His own ideas are basically orthodox, although he seeks to correct the alleged Helenistic influences on the classical doctrine of God.
 
Deeply insightful!  May 28, 2000
Donald Bloesch does a masterful job soaking the issues related to the study of God's nature into the matrix of historical thought. He makes the reader aware of the philosophical strands which pervade the various doctrines related to God, and lends credit and criticism where they are needed. He suggests that the classical formulations of theology should be carefully examined and drained of some of the abstractions of philosophy, and that the aberrations of neo-orthodoxy be seen with the implications laid bare. Though Dr. Bloesch is not averse to the presence of reason and logic in the doing of theology, he emphasizes rightly that the God who occupies our thought must also transcend our comprehension. He opposes the reductionistic and rationalistic tendencies that are extant in modern theology. As a result of reading this book my understanding of theology proper has been calcified, and my awareness of differing views on the subject matter has been significantly increased.
