Bachelor of Divinity (B.Div)
Alfred von Rohr Sauer
In brief, the problem, common to the Old Testament, as to all other religious and to all except atheistic philosophies, is that of God’s transcendence vs. His immanence. If God is the Creator, the Absolute, the Prime Mover, what contact, if any, can He have with the created, sensible universe? If the pantheistic solution of identifying creator and creation is rejected, some degree of divine transcendence must be predicated. If He is transcendent, how will he reveal Himself to mankind? Through intermediaries, or by self-revelation; and, if the latter, by theophany or incarnation?
