About this book

This book is a thorough analysis and discussion of the nature of time and eternity, focusing on the timelessness of God. After considering two theories of time in the light of modern science and philosophy, Padgett argues for a 'process' notion of time. After an historical and biblical survey of the doctrine of eternity, Padgett rejects both the 'everlasting' and the 'timeless' theory of eternity, seeking to defend the intuition that God transcends time.
