A New Case for Human Freedom

God in Eternity and Time presents a fresh solution to the question of determinism versus human freedom, starting from the vantage point of God’s words and acts in creation.

Overview

When theology begins with God’s eternal will and knowledge, determinism tends to result. In God in Eternity and Time, eminent scholar Robert Picirilli argues we should look first to God’s creation and the incarnation—to the created order where God has chosen to act and reveal himself. As God’s decrees and foreknowledge in eternity are then read in light of his acts in time, God’s interactions with human beings on the personal level of influence and response clearly reveal themselves.

God in Eternity and Time presents a fresh argument for libertarian human freedom. Divided into two sections, the first part of the book explores how God speaks and acts in creation, while the second carefully examines foreknowledge and “middle knowledge,” demonstrating the fallacy of logical arguments against freedom based on foreknowledge.
