Unknown to many, increasing numbers of conservative evangelicals are denying basic tenets of classical Christian teaching about God, with departures occurring even among those of the Calvinistic persuasion. James E. Dolezal's All That Is in God provides an exposition of the historic Christian position while engaging with these contemporary deviations. His convincing critique of the newer position he styles "theistic mutualism" is philosophically robust, systematically nuanced, and biblically based. It demonstrates the need to maintain the traditional viewpoint, particularly on divine simplicity, and spotlights the unfortunate implications for other important Christian doctrinessuch as divine eternality and the Trinityif it were to be abandoned. Arguing carefully and cogently that "all that is in God is God Himself," the work is sure to stimulate debate on the issue in years to come.… (more)

If you are looking for a book detailing the Doctrine of God (Theology Proper) from the perspective of Thomistic metaphysics, this is an excellent book. If, however, you reject Thomism, which I do, then this will look like a book utilizing outdated philosophical ideas to attempt to understand God, and spectacularly failing due to its flawed philosophy.

Also, as an FYI, the Scriptures do not teach Aristotle or Thomas Aquinas. So one is most certainly not required to use Thomistic metaphysics in one's understanding of God. ( )
