"[E]xibits a rich spectrum of argument concerning the many-faceted issue of God's relation to time...I found no essay in this anthology that lacked intellectual rigor. Accordingly, the volume should serve as an excellent ancillary text for courses in philosophy of religion that focus on divine attributes...I recommend this collection, and must confess that I cannot begin to do justice to its rich argumentation in such a brief review."--The Journal of Religion
"God and Time: Essays on the Divine Nature is not simply another explication of God's nature. It is a well ordered collection of essays divided into four sections: God's existence, God as a creator, his knowledge, and God's relation to the universe. The selection of essays and authors is as varied and purposeful as its divisions and includes a useful index...Ganssle quickly maps the territory for the reader and clearly demonstrates that temporality is one of the critical foci for contemporary philosophical theology...God and Time is a well balanced contribution to philosophical theology and I enthusiastically recommend this book as a primer to the ongoing God and time discussion...Congratulations to the editors for providing a timely and serviceable resource."--Philosophia Christi

I should also mention that there are two essays that do not explicitly deal with God's relation to time. William Lane Craig's paper on the Special Theory of Relativity argues that Newton's concept of absolute time has not been done away with by Einstein. Quintin Smith's interesting essay is sort of an atheistic Kalam cosmological argument for the non-existence of God.
This is not an introductory book, and I would not recommend it for students who do not have any previous knowledge about the issues discussed here. I would first recommend reading Ganssle's "Thinking About God", Thomas Morris' "Our Idea of God", or perhaps some other introduction to philosophy of religion before trying to work through this book.
