God and Time: Essays on the Divine Nature

Gregory E. Ganssle and David M. Woodruff


This is a collection of essays written by philosophers about God's relation to time. The essays have been selected to represent current debates written between those who believe God to be atemporal and those who do not. The essays highlight issues such as how the nature of time is relevant to whether God is temporal and how God's other attributes are compatible with his mode of temporal being. By focusing on the metaphysical aspects of time and temporal existence, the book contributes to the current resurgence of interest in philosophical theology within the analytic tradition.

Keywords: God, time, analytic tradition, temporal, nature of time, philosophical theology
