This brief tour through three thousand years of religious history shows how the Christian doctrine of God evolved in response to tensions within the insights of monotheism. The very personal, changeable, and involved God of the Hebrew Bible transformed decisively in its encounter with Greek metaphysical concepts and with the emerging trinitarian notions of the early Christian period. Capetz skillfully traces this history and shows how the tensions thus created are with us still.
