Calvin Smith did a recent post on the Openness of God. Before I get into his posting I wanted to say that Calvin Smith is the Principal and teacher at my new school “King’s Evangelical Divinity School“, and is a active blogger. If you haven’t added him to your Reader you should he is very thought provoking.
He just posted on the subject of the Openness of God, in which he has given further thoughts on his reading of “The Openness of God: A Biblical Challenge to the Traditional Understanding of God by Clark Pinnock, Richard Rice, John Sanders, William Hasker and David Basinger”. His interaction was very irenic, and as any good book should do, it caused him to rethink his position. In summary he says:
…the Openness of God is a useful book that emphasises God’s great love and forces us to re-examine our theology, particularly what it means to have a genuine relationship with God. Some very probing questions concerning free-will successfully challenge all theologically-minded readers, not just Calvinists…
Go and check it out even if this subject is not of interest to you. You will find that he is an engaging writer, and hopefully you will find value in what he has to offer.
