God Without Parts: Divine Simplicity and the Metaphysics of God's Absoluteness

James E. Dolezal (2011)

The doctrine of divine simplicity has a long pedigree in the history of the church, but it is under severe attack by contemporary theologians and philosophers. Many are rejecting the doctrine as incoherent. In this book Dolezal responds to the philosophical and theological challenges that are being urged against God’s simplicity. He endeavors to demonstrate that these objections fail, and that simplicity is necessary in order to understand God’s attributes and nature. Dolezal interacts with both historical and contemporary sources to make his case that the doctrine of divine simplicity is actually an essential theological point for a right understanding of God.
