Faith in a Personal God
Before examining the divine self-revelation, above all in Jesus Christ, one needs to reflect on the existence and attributes of God. Hence this chapter tackles five questions: what account do believers give of the essential attributes of God? Does horrendous evil provide a decisive reason for doubting or even denying the existence of an all-loving, all-knowing, and all-powerful God? What account might believers give of God's special activity in the world? Faced with the challenges from evolutionary theory and other developments in science, how do believers describe their grounds for faith in a personal God or even support such faith with proofs? In what different contexts (e.g. religious experience) do they approach the God-question?
