A new theology is trickling down from the lofty halls of academia to the pews of evangelical churches. Called "open theism," this novel view of God denies that he fully knows the future and insists that He takes risks by giving humans wide-ranging freedom. This view has disastrous consequences for the everyday faith of ordinary Christians, consequences you can't afford to ignore. This book explains some of the beliefs of open theism and shows their practical implications. Using biblical truth and personal anecdotes, Bruce Ware demonstrates now open theism undermines trust in God for everyday life, particularly in the midst of suffering. This is no dry academic discourse; if you care about God's glory and your confidence in Him, then this book is for you because it concerns the everyday issues of faith.

This is a "five star" book. This book would be worth having if all a person read was Chapter 4, "Open Theism and Prayer", but the whole work is valuable and precise. Every believer should equip himself or herself with the powerful knowledge in this book. I so appreciate that Bruce Ware declares God as Sovereign and that the Sovereignty of God is an attribute to be understood and grapsed.
