Genesis 18 – The Intercession of Abraham
This article is an exposition of Genesis 18, where Abraham intercedes for Sodom.
Praying with the Patriarchs
This article is introduced with the question, "Does God take risks?" The intention is to answer the basic question whether God changes his mind due to human influence (such as prayer) and therefore whether he absolutely knows the future. Open theism takes as one of its key texts Genesis 18:22-23. The article considers this passage and concludes that here God is condescending to our human weakness and frailty.
