Biblical Truths

Dale B. Martin

Yale University Press

Even if ancient biblical writers did not have the philosophical training to have anticipated later Christian doctrines such as the transcendence or immanence of God, divine simplicity, even the doctrine of the trinity, postmodern Christians should not be constrained by those historical limits from reading the New Testament to arrive at robust, though sometimes complex, theologies of the nature of God and of what it means to say, in the 21st century, “I believe in God.”

Keywords:   Transcendence, Immanence, Divine Simplicity, Trinity, Negative Theology, Apophatic Theology, Idolatry, Faith, Confession, Gender
