What Is Divine Eternity?

Show Summary Details

Preview

Addresses the coherence of the idea ‘divine timeless eternity’. In particular, its relation to divine simplicity and the implications of it for God's relation to what is temporal. It is denied that eternity is a kind of simultaneity, and that if God is related to a temporal universe, then he also must be temporal.

Keywords: eternity; God; simplicity; simultaneity; temporal; universe
