Beyond Time: Defending God's Transcendence

Dr. Tim Sansbury
Beyond Time: Defending God's Transcendence
The book Beyond Time: Defending God’s Transcendence responds to the recent turn in Christian theology towards the view that God is temporal. The book develops an interdisciplinary basis, drawing on resources from historical theology, relativity and quantum mechanics, and the modern philosophy of time, to demonstrate the continued viability of the view that God transcends created time. God’s presence, knowledge, activity, and personhood, as well as the more general problem of fatalism, are commonly cited arguments against timelessness, yet these issues are demonstrably inconsequential or even resolved by a robust view of divine transcendence. Beyond Time:Defending God’s Transcendence engages readers with the fascinating question of time’s nature, in order to vindicate the historically orthodox view that God lives beyond time.
