God with Us [eBook]
Divine Condescension and the Attributes of God
The desire to harmonize God’s attributes with his actions has challenged laymen and scholars throughout the ages. For the Christian mind seeking to understand the nature of God, a fundamental paradox poses a philosophical stumbling block: how can God be both a wholly independent, infinite being yet also be an interactive force in the finite plane of creation? In God With Us, K. Scott Oliphint finds an answer in the person of Jesus Christ incarnate—the manifestation of God and the cornerstone of creation.
Where other theological efforts view the study of Jesus as simply one aspect of a systematic approach, Oliphint puts a primary focus on understanding the Son of God as both the quintessential revelation of God’s character and the explanation of how God relates to us. This book helps us think biblically about who God is and how he in his eminence can condescend to us in our finite surroundings.
K. SCOTT OLIPHINT (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. He has written, edited, and contributed to multiple books as well as written numerous scholarly articles that show his heart for developing a Christian mind rooted in strong reasoning and biblical truth.
