About God with Us

For the Christian mind seeking to understand the nature of God, one fundamental paradox poses a philosophical stumbling block: how can God be both a wholly independent, eternal being yet also an interactive force in the temporal plane of creation? The desire to harmonize God’s actions and his attributes has challenged laymen and scholars through the ages. In God With Us, K. Scott Oliphint finds an answer in the person of Jesus Christ incarnate—the manifestation of God and the cornerstone of creation.

Where other theological efforts view the study of Jesus as simply one branch of a systematic approach, Oliphint puts a primary focus on the understanding of the Son of God as both the quintessential revelation of God’s character and the explanation of how he relates to us. This book leads the reader to think biblically about who God is and how he in his eminence can condescend to us in our finite surroundings. Oliphint’s unique approach to the attributes of God will appeal to anyone desiring a biblical perspective on God’s nature, whether for academic reasons or personal advancement.
