John Michael Perry considers how God was experienced in the Old and New Testaments. In the context of the Ancient Near East, Exploring the Evolving View of God chronicles Israel's development to monotheism, as well as the apostles' evolving understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Hebrew prophecy. Exploring the Evolving View of God outlines cultural and historical limitations that continue to shape our language and ideas about God. It relates abstract thinking about God to the concrete history of ancient Israel and draws parallels between Israel's history and the New Testament confession of Jesus as Messiah. With Scripture passages, discussion questions and written in an accessible style, Exploring the Evolving View of God is a suitable companion for individual or group study.
