The nature of God is that he cannot be "bound" to one place or time-but he also took finite form, bounded to a redemptive act and time that forever changed the world. The understanding of the Triune God also brings together a certain “boundedness” that cannot be taken in any way to limit the bounds of the Creator.
In this treatment on the nature of the Lord, Adrienne Von Speyr’s mystical erudition is implemented to great effect, allowing the reader to glimpse a view of God that many lack. The fruitfulness of these meditations is evident on every page, and brings the Christian view of divinity to a new and beautiful level of interpretative thought.
