Encyclopedic in range and formidable in learning, God and Being lives up to its ambitious title in a refreshingly modest way...there are surprises and delights on nearly every page for even the most seasoned expert in the field. Stephen H. Webb, Conversations in Religion and Theology At a time when, as Pattison concludes, accelerating impacts of technology across the whole of human life mean that the nature of human being (let alone God as being) is put into question, it is ultimately reassuring to see the Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity at Oxford urging us to our knees in praise of God as Being, whose gift is being-itself. Dr John Saxbee, Church Times Here are imaginative and often elegant reflections which will strike chords, jog memories, and provoke reciprocal reflection. G. M. Newlands, Journal of Theological Studies
