Format: Paperback
In the face of modern theologies and spiritualities which emphasise a 'suffering God', Fr Tom Weinandy herein offers a new look at the traditional patristic notion of God's impassibility -- and in so doing, attempts to show how this classical notion in fact more fully emphasises the care and love of God for man. The subject is systematically treated from the perspectives of comparative patristics, later theologians, and various philosophical approaches; and several modern-day encapsulations of passible-God-beliefs are examined and critiqued. Written in a more accessible style than the same author's "Does God Change?" this book is no less thorough and offers a profoundly well structured support for the traditional belief in God's impassibility.

Contrary to so much modern theological opinion, Weinandy offers in very clear and compelling prose a thorough and convicincing argument for God's impassibility. Weinandy has clearly immersed himself in the pertinent primary literature (the Scripture and the fathers) and has an incredible command of the seconday literature of modern passibilists. This is a must read for all who would take up to defend or attack the traditional doctrine of God's impassibility.

An intensely wonderful book on the origins of suffering as part of humanity.
The book give a construct of how God suffers that helps understand our own suffering.
