In this comprehensive and thought-provoking study, Terence Fretheim focuses on the theme of divine suffering, an aspect of our understanding of God which both the church and scholarship have neglected. Maintaining that "metaphors matter," Fretheim carefully examines the ruling and anthropomorphic metaphors of the Old Testament and discusses them in the context of current biblical-theological scholarship. His aim is to broaden our understanding of the God of the Old Testament by showing that "suffering belongs to the person and purpose of God".Table of ContentsEditor's ForewordPrefaceAbbreviations1 IntroductionWhat Kind of God?Anthropomorphic Metaphor2 God in Old Testament TheologyA Metaphoric ShiftConvergence and PluralismDirectionsStory and GeneralizationThe Old Testament God and Contemporary Issues3 God and World: Basic PrespectivesGod's Relationship to the World Is Real and Has IntegrityGod is Internally Related to the World4 God and World: ForeknowledgeThe Divine PerhapsThe Divine IfThe Divine ConsultationThe Divine Question5 God and World: Presence and PowerIntensifications of the Divine PresenceDivine Presence and Divine AbsenceDivine Freedom and AccessibilityImmanence and TranscendencePresence, Relationship, and Power6 God in Human FormTheophanyVisible WordsMeteorological PhenomenaIn Human FormDivine VulnerabilityThe Humann Form of God7 God Suffers BecauseA Broken RelationshipThe Memory of GodThe Future of GodSummary8 God Suffers WithRooted in Israel's ExperienceGod as MournerSummary9 God Suffers ForGod's Self-GivingDivine HumiliationSummary10 Prophet, Theophany, and the Suffering of GodProphet and MessengerThe Prophet's Suffering Because of Being RejectedThe Prophet's Suffering With the PeopleThe Prophet's Suffering For the PeopleNotesIndexes
