Product Description
In this most up-to-date study, Aaron Yom provides a comprehensive analysis of the doctrine of God, particularly from a pneumatological perspective. He focuses on retrieving the order of God that has been consistently misunderstood and mistreated by modern scholars. The author carefully examines scholarly works of modern thinkers such as Karl Barth, Thomas Torrance, Karl Rahner, David Coffey, Jurgen Moltmann, Clark Pinnock, and Stanley Grenz, as well as ancient masters such as Augustine and Aquinas. With a critical analysis, he highlights the strengths and weaknesses of their work to lay a foundational platform for understanding God's order in the twenty-first-century theological context. Yom proposes a holistic approach that does not marginalize the logic of the Trinity that begins with God's order of ontology rather than God's order of economy, though the former is read from the latter. He maintains the intricate balance of the immanent Trinity and the economic Trinity with his newfound principle of identity and duality. Yom offers several new theological paradigms for those who are interested in the topic of systematic theology. ""Dr. Yom has produced a well-written, carefully argued, and passionate defense of the uniqueness of God's order and ontology from a pneumatological standpoint, through a critical and constructive conversation with towering figures of modern theology. . . . Any student of theology will benefit from this rich feast that serves as a sound 'roadmap' to pursue the knowledge of God systematically on God's own terms."" --Enoch Charles, Bethel College ""Aaron Yom's The Order of God presents a most compelling challenge to reexamine the multitudinous aspects of God, and the order in which these inherent God characteristics exist and operate. Yom confronts some of the established and accepted theological and philosophical interpretations of God's order, and offers for consideration a different hermeneutic of that order."" --Sheila Robinson, Associate Pastor, Grace Tabernacle Community Church, San Francisco ""Dr. Aaron Yom lays out an alternative to the modern and postmodern tendencies of doing theology with a focus on the interpreting subject, or the relevance of God's activity for human beings, by reorienting the locus of theology to God's own ontology, without merely reverting to a regressive premodernity. This is truly an ambitious work."" --Matthew Brake, series editor, Theology and Pop Culture Aaron Yom is an adjunct faculty at Ohio Christian University and William Seymour College. He has taught courses in systematic theology, biblical theology, and pastoral theology. He is the author of Number, Word, and Spirit (2017) and The World of Open Systems (2018).
