Review of Metaphysics 56 (3):640-641 (2003)

Philosopher William Lane Craig of the Talbot School of Theology has published three other Kluwer books on time and eternity and God’s relationship to them. In this book, Craig draws some important strands together regarding the concept of God and relativity theory. He notes the striking “paucity of integrative literature” in this regard: “I am convinced that this lack is largely due to the fact that theologians and philosophers of religion do not understand Einstein’s theories and so are reduced to merely parroting what they read in scientific popularizations,” resulting in “a superficial and uncritical interaction”.
