Honest look at implications, of omniscience and immutability Feb 26, 1998
This book honestly looks at the meaning, implications and ramifications of the traditional view of God's omniscience and immutability. The philosophical and practical difficulties that arise out of the traditional view are demonstrated. Rice then offers a new view: The open view. I found his arguments to be persuasive, yet not completely compelling. The open view, while allowing for God's soverignty is also able to accomodate man's freedom. He also examins the ramifications of the open view for creation, providence, predestination, prophecy, the problem of evil and others. This book, I think really finds a compromise in the Calvinian/Arminian debate. It is also written in a nontechnical style which any person with a mere superficial understanding of the issue can appreciate.
