The blog’s regular readers will no doubt remember our support of Bob Gonzales’ writing on the doctrine of the impassibility of God here. Well, now I would like to call your attention to his review of Confessing the Impassible God: The Biblical, Classical, & Confessional Doctrine of Divine Impassibility. In this review Bob manages to put into words what has troubled many of us regarding the current debate over the doctrine of divine impassibility. The review is entitled From Dust to Deity: Some Critical Reflections on a Critical Book, and I highly recommend taking time to read it. And, while you’re at it, you might want to take some time to read more of Bob’s excellent, thoughtful, balanced and Biblical writing on his It Is Written blog. The slogan under the blog titles says, “Promoting the Supremacy of Scripture,” and that is exactly what Bob does, not only on the issue of impassibility but on every issue about which he writes.

I am currently serving as the primary teaching elder of Immanuel Baptist Church in Bloomington, Illinois, where I have been since 1994. My fellow-elders are George Drye, Dennis Luhn, Brent Flint, and Ben Murphy, each of whom also resides in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Together, by the grace of God, we make up one pretty good pastor! I received my B.A. in Biblical Studies from Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University) in Columbia, South Carolina. And I received my M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. And, by the way, my last name has a silent 'h' and is pronounced 'troop.' View all posts by Keith Throop
