Reviews - What do customers think about God and the Crisis of Freedom?

Takes a controversial standpoint and defends it well  Feb 7, 2003
God And The Crisis Of Freedom: Biblical And Contemporary Perspectives is a thoughtful treatise by Richard Bauckham (Professor of New Testament Studies and Bishop Wardlaw Professor at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland) on a very serious question: Does faith in God necessarily require that one's freedom be limited? Proposing that true freedom only comes through dependence, belonging, community, and divine authority, Professor Bauckham takes a controversial standpoint and defends it well, investing heavily in deep theological discussion and persuasion for the case that human freedom is intertwined with the human relationship to the triune God of Christianity.
