Brian Leftow makes an important contribution to the longstanding debate among philosophers and theologians about the nature of God's eternity. The author develops a powerful and original defense of the notion that God is eternal in that he exists timelessly; that is, that though God exists, he does not exist at any time. Leftow defends the claim that a timeless God can be an object of human experience, and he attempts to delineate the extent of such a God's omniscience. Finally, the author pays special attention to the relation between the claim that God is timeless and the claim that God is metaphysically simple.

In this highly original and ground-breaking work, the author brings together discussions in the philosophy of time and space, philosophy of language, phenomenology, philosophy of science, Special and General Relativity, classical cosmology, quantum mechanics, and so forth, with the concerns of philosophy of religion and theology, in order to craft a philosophically informed and scientifically tenable doctrine of divine eternity and God's relationship to time.

The final report on the conservation of the wall paintings in the tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of Queens, Egypt. This highly successful collaborative venture launched by the Getty Conservation Institute and the Egyptian Antiquities Organization brought together scientists and conservators from all over the world to address the problems facing one of the most beautiful monuments of antiquity. The painstaking process that saved this cultural treasure in situ is documented in the text written by those who were most intimately involved in its rescue. Paolo and Laura Mora worked with and trained the team of conservators who carried out the consolidation and cleaning of the paintings. An international group of scientists carried out the analysis that was essential to the conservation process. Others contribute articles on the archaeology of the Valley, the iconography of the tomb, the original techniques and materials used by the artists, photographic documentation of the wall paintings, and literary sources for their study.

This collection of studies in the history of political thought from late antiquity to the early-eighteenth century ranges broadly across themes of kingship, political theology, constitutional ideas, natural-law thinking and consent theory. The studies are linked together by three shared characteristics. First, all of them explore the continuities that existed during those centuries between legal/political thinking and theology. Second, nearly all of them transgress the sharp dividing line traditionally drawn between the medieval" and the " modern" which did so much in the past to distort our understanding of intellectual developments in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Third, all of them raise historiographic questions or probe the metahistorical/methodological questions which have troubled the field for the past quarter-century and more."

What exactly is Time? Time has often been counterpoised by the notion of Eternity as just that place, wherever it is, that is "timeless." Recently some physicists have sought to comprehend the universe as just one among many, or has denied the existence of Time outright. Through a use of Friedrich Nietzsche's thought of the Eternal Recurrence of All Things once made compatible with Christian orthodoxy's notion of time and eternity, when combined with the latest in modern physics, the author posits here a new theory of Time that can account for human freedom in the midst of a deterministic world, while at the same time explaining the Uncertainty Principle and how Reality became what it is. With Time given ontological priority, all of our suspicions about lack of objectivity in scientific method are revealed as justified, while the hitherto indecipherable nature of the cosmos, and the role a Deity might have in it, are explained. "God and Eternity" is a brilliant intellectual tour de force that puts natural theology on an equal footing with post-modern wonderment and enlightenment at an historical moment when a host of crucial questions are being asked anew. JAMES BARLOW is Associate Professor of Philosophy at St. Andrew's College and Seminary, Lexington, North Carolina, and a Mathematics instructor at Nunavut Arctic College in Canada. He has studied and taught in the Philippines and Alaska in the United States. He currently lives in Iqaluit, on South Baffin Island, capital of the territory of Nunavut, Canada.

Throughout the centuries, people from diverse cultures, circumstances and points of view have wrestled with the concept of time. In the 5th Century St. Augustine said, "What is time? If no one asks me, I know; but if any person should require me to tell him, I cannot." Time magazine said as the last century closed, "While scientists have harnessed the power of the atom, cracked the genetic code and probed the very edges of the universe, they still don't understand time much better than St. Augustine did." Here the author leads a though-provoking discussion that begins in time, ends in eternity, and focuses continually on the Eternal One who is the source of both.
