ABSTRACT: Mathematics is obviously important in the sciences. And so it is likely to
be equally important in any effort that aims to understand God in a scientifically
significant way or that aims to clarify the relations between science and theology. The
degree to which God has any perfection is absolutely infinite. We use contemporary
mathematics to precisely define that absolute infinity. For any perfection, we use
transfinite recursion to define an endlessly ascending series of degrees of that perfection.
That series rises to an absolutely infinite degree of that perfection. God has that
absolutely infinite degree. We focus on the perfections of knowledge, power, and
benevolence. Our model of divine infinity thus builds a bridge between mathematics and
