"Erickson, distinguished professor of theology at Truett Seminary, has provided an excellent "update" regarding the doctrine of God in this volume."--Bibliotheca Sacra

The book is useful for seminary students and others who wish a brisk handbook on these questions from an evangelical perspective."--S. Mark Heim (Religious Studies Review)
