The Scottish theologian John Oman (1860-1939) conceived of God in terms of a personal reality who calls forth--rather than inhibits--freedom, creativity, and responsibility. Although he never wrote a book on God as such, all Oman's thought is based on this conception of God's radically personal nature and gracious--though often challenging--dealing with humanity. This book systematizes the thoughts on God that are scattered throughout Oman's writings, and places Oman in his historical and cultural context of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
