God Is Impassible and Impassioned

Toward a Theology of Divine Emotion
  • By Rob Lister
$19.49
($22.99)

Modern theologians are focused on the doctrine of divine impassibility, exploring the significance of God's emotional experience and most especially the question of divine suffering. Professor Rob Lister speaks into the issue, arguing that God's nature is fundamentally impassible and yet profoundly impassioned. After outlining the history of the doctrine in the views of influential figures such as Augustine, Aquinas, and Luther, Lister carefully examines modernity's growing rejection of impassibility and the subsequent evangelical response by theologians such as John Stott and John Frame. With an eye toward holistic synthesis, this book proposes a theological model based upon fresh insights into the historical, biblical, and theological dimensions of this important doctrine.
