Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book contains some rare combinations: first, an author who is as concerned with conceptual clarification as he is with the absolute truthfulness of the biblical text; second, an argument that avoids the common "either-ors" and contends for the importance of both divine sovereignty and divine solicitude in equal measure; third, an approach that espouses divine determinism and divine temporality. No One Like Him takes on the most intractable intellectual challenges of contemporary evangelical theology."
Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"John Feinberg judicially reconstructs aspects of the classical view of God in a way that proves more faithful than process and openness of God theisms. Arguably, this is the best study of theology proper in print."
Bruce Demarest, Professor of Theology and Spiritual Formation, Denver Seminary

"Feinberg reads theology with a philosopher's eye and writes it with a philosopher's sensitivity to illogic and incoherence."
J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College

"A magisterial work, one that truly deserves to be called a magnum opus. . . . It reveals its author as . . . perhaps the only modern scholar whose work, like that of Carl. F. H. Henry, can compare in size, detail, comprehensiveness, and intellectual acuity with the accomplishments of the late Karl Barth. . . . It is not risky to predict that Feinberg's No One Like Him will come to be a milestone in evangelical theology."
Harold O. J. Brown, Professor Emeritus of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Format: Paperback
No One Like Him is the most comprehensive and contemporary work currently available in Evangelical (systematic) theology proper. The author, Dr John Feinberg, Chairman and Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (and my doctoral advisor), not only brings readers into contact with the core historical positions grounding evangelical theology, but significantly emphasizes more contemporary questions within evangelical theology including the perspectives of divine temporality and process theology, both issues regarding which Feinberg has published major previous works. This may very well be the most thorough and current work dealing with the increasingly popular Process Theology from an Evangelical Perspective.
This massive 800 page theology text treats thoroughly the 'Being and Nature of God' and 'Acts of God', as well as humanity's 'Concepts of God' wherein trends in contemporary **thought** are analysed and evaluated. If you want to swim in the deep end with a trusted instructor, I thoroughly recommend this text.
This volume is one of 10 planned for the 'Foundations of Evangelical Theology' series. Future contributing authors will include Bruce Demarest, David C Clark, Kevin Van Hoozer, and Walter Kaiser.
Happy reading. Happy Learning. Happy thinking.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book really fed me and strengthened my faith. John Feinberg presents God as the King who cares, taking a mediating position between classical theism and process theism.

Feinberg surveys the historic and contemporary understandings of who or what God has been thought to be. He discusses the theology of Paul Tillich, Karl Barth, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Immanuel Kant, Albert Ritschl, Hegel, and others. There is also a candid and clear interaction with modernity and postmodernity.

He also surveys the ontological, teleological and cosmological arguments for the existence of God. He also surveys the doctrine of the Trinity, and adds to the discussion of the relationship of God to the problem of evil.

The Openness of God has been highly debated in evangelical circles, so Feinberg has a lengthy discussion of this theology. He also discusses the relationship of God to the theory of evolution.

Feinberg writes in a wonderfully engaging way, and he always shows the utmost respect for the positions he critiques. I loved how it wasn't over my head, and he argues strenuously and persuasively for his own understanding of God. This is an instant classic in evangelical thought. Both lay people and clergy will be highly blessed by this book.

Some chapters are written in an ostentatious manner that makes reading for the average or moderately above average person difficult to read. However, the depth is very helpful and informative once the sense of it can be captured. Writers such as Feinberg have so much to share that is worthwhile that it is a shame they feel the need to write for college officials who may promote them or hire them to higher levels due to their elevated style.

This book's author covers all the views in a balanced way. Yet he also is strong and convincing on the biblical view. He does tend to get wordy and repetitive in parts.
