Product Overview

The dominant view among Christian theologians and philosophers is that God is timeless-that he exists outside of time in an ''atemporal'' eternity. In God, Time, and the Incarnation, Richard Holland offers a critical evaluation of this traditional view in light of the most central doctrine of Christianity: the Incarnation of Christ. Holland reviews the history of the controversy, highlighting the various theological problems for which atemporal models were offered as a solution. He asserts the central importance of the Incarnation for Christian theology, and evaluates some atemporal models in light of this doctrine. Finally, he suggests that the traditional ''atemporal'' view is not compatible with a robust and orthodox view of the Incarnation. The book rejects the traditional atemporal view of God's relationship to time, and provides an argument based on the Incarnation that God experiences temporal sequence in his existence.
