William Lane Craig is one the best philosophers of faith and one of many best philosophers of time. during this publication, he combines his services in those parts to provide an unique, erudite, and available thought of time and God that may be of serious curiosity to either most people and students. it's a profitable adventure to learn via this terrific and well-researched ebook via probably the most discovered and artistic thinkers of our era.
--Quentin Smith
Professor of Philosophy, Western Michigan University

In Time and Eternity, William Lane Craig defends the impressive end that "God is undying with out production and temporal due to the fact that creation." Craig argues his case philosophically via conscientiously weighing proof for and opposed to divine temporality and personhood in gentle of dynamic as opposed to static theories of time and their warrants, in flip, in a Lorentzian interpretation of distinctive relativity and an goal, mind-independent idea of changing into, together with interesting tours into sizeable Bang cosmology and the philosophy of arithmetic. because the most recent in his sequence of ground-breaking books, Time and Eternity summarizes and extends Craig's prior technical arguments and conveys them to a extra common viewers. it's a must-read for a person heavily drawn to the matter of time and eternity in Christian philosophy.
--Robert Russell

Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, Calif.

The nature of time is a constant resource of puzzlement either to technological know-how and in lifestyle. it's also an immense factor in theological understandings of the character of God. during this attention-grabbing publication, Professor Craig tackles this advanced set of issues in a transparent method. His dialogue of the interrelated clinical, philosophical, and theological concerns clears up many prior misconceptions and proposes a believable realizing of the relation of God to time and eternity that many will locate helpful.
