The Suffering of God: An Old Testament Perspective

Portada
Fortress Press, 1985 - 203 pàgines
In this comprehensive and thought-provoking study, Terence Fretheim focuses on the theme of divine suffering, an aspect of our understanding of God which both the church and scholarship have neglected.

His aim is to broaden our understanding of the God of the Old Testament by showing that "suffering belongs to the person and purpose of God".
