probably the most concerns in modern Christian theology is the matter of a renewed knowing of God's eternity and its relation to time. this isn't only a peripheral doctrinal factor, yet lies on the middle of our figuring out of God and humanity, and contributes to our whole worldview. This learn makes a speciality of a long-standing debate among competing perspectives on God's eternity: one thinking about God's absolute timelessness in classical theism, and the opposite on God's temporal everlastingness in modern panentheism. unlike either one of those well-worn thoughts, this booklet provides another Trinitarian analogical knowing of God's eternity and its relation to time, particularly via a serious mirrored image on Karl Barth's and Hans Urs von Balthasar's engagement of the problem. This analogical process, in accordance with the dynamic and dramatic techniques of God's being-in-relation and of the Triune God's communicative motion in eternity and time, has the capability to solve the controversy among absolute undying eternity and temporal eternal duration.

"To converse good of God we needs to say whatever approximately eternity. however, it's a courageous theologian who ventures into the fields of educational discourse to assert anything concerning the nature of time. Kim's booklet breaks the philosophical impasse among those that view eternity as timelessness and people who view it as everlastingness by means of increasing his discussion companions to incorporate Barth and von Balthasar and by means of reorienting the total dialogue in a desirable christological and Trinitarian direction."

"In this publication, we will be able to discover a outstanding try and get to the bottom of an important factor in modern Christian theology, the matter of God's eternity and its relation to time. Dr. Eunsoo Kim offers a good review of the biblical, historic, philosophical, medical, and theological debates at the subject. in particular, the ultimate bankruptcy of the ebook, that's the author's major contribution to Christian theology, must never be ignored. This quantity will be extra to the interpreting record for someone and dealing during this area."
--Jong Yun Lee
Senior Pastor of Seoul Presbyterian Church

"Kim makes an important contribution to the present debate approximately time, eternity, and God. His biblical, theological, and philosophical scholarship is thorough and insightful. His analogical-trinitarian answer, constructed from Barth and von Balthassar, is confident and articulate. it's a worthwhile addition no matter if conventional theology presents an analogical knowing of eternity."
--John W. Cooper
Professor of Philosophical Theology
Calvin Theological Seminary

"The writer effectively provides an artistic, biblical--as good as evangelical--theological account of 'time and eternity' . . . by means of suggesting a brand new Trinitarian ontology, particularly, 'Being-as-life-in-relation.'"
