Christians throughout history have been strengthened by their confidence that God knows everything about the future. However, ‘open’ theism claims to offer a more biblical and a more practical alternative to traditional views of God’s sovereignty and involvement in our lives. Bruce Ware carefully summarises and critiques this redefinition of the nature of God. He provides an excellent treatment of both classical and open theism, explores their implications and pinpoints the subtle ways in which open theism undermines our trust in God and lessens his glory. “‘Open’ theism offers a God who, like us, does not know the future. Its sponsors see this humanising of God as logical and devotional gain. Bruce Ware sees it as a way of misreading Scripture and impoverishing the life of faith, and he makes a compelling case for his view. I heartily commend
his thorough and insightful book.”
J I Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College


Bruce Ware is Professor of Christian Theology at Southern
Baptist Theological Seminary, USA, and the author of several books.
