God's Action in the World

The Bampton Lectures for 1986
  • By Maurice Wiles
Product Description
Does God act in the world? Does he affect what happens to us in the varied experiences of our daily life? If so, in what ways and by what means? In an age when so many of the particular cases in which communities or individuals find themselves led to speak of God's acting prove to be cases which appear to others both morally and spiritually unacceptable, we need to give thought to the deeper underlying issue. Can God be said to act in the world at all? Does God even exist? The nature of God's action is clearly of the utmost importance for Christians, because they claim that God does act in the world and has acted specifically in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. But how does his action here relate to his action elsewhere? How do we discern it? These questions lead Professor Wiles to discuss the nature of creation, the origin of evil, providence in public and private history, and finally God's action in Christ and in us. Concerned to give a consistent overall interpretation, he provides answers which at the same time question much current Christian thinking. Maurice Wiles (1929-2005) was Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University for 21 years, from 1970 to 1991. Known for his wide-ranging interests in contributions to the history of Christian doctrine, he was the author of The Making of Christian Doctrine and The Remaking of Christian Doctrine.
