Is God ever surprised?

I came across this great blog post by Scot McKnight this morning, which draws heavily on John Goldingay’s latest book Key Questions about Christian Faith: Old Testament Answers.  Here’s a taster:

John Goldingay, in his new book, Key Questions about Christian Faith: Old Testament Answers, has a chp on a question many “fresh” readers of the Bible ask: Does God have surprises? Or does God know everything so that nothing surprises him?

Which brings us to part two in this series — God’s knowledge of the present and the past.

Goldingay distinguishes “innate” from “empirical” knowledge — the former what God knows as God and the latter what God discovers by searching.
