Item description for Handbook of Process Theology by Jay McDaniel & Donna Bowman...
Overview "Here finally may be the answer to a long-standing prayer: for an introduction to process theology that really will work for the theological classroom. This finely organized collection, with its mix of founding authorities and fresh varieties, captures the excitement, scope, and doctrinal depth of process theology. I look forward to sharing it with my seminarians."
Publishers Description Handbook of Process Theology addresses both the depth and scope of process theological thought. It brings together distinguished contributors from several generations of process theological history to reflect on a multitude of outlooks and concerns, all grounded in the foundational emphases of the process approach: the discernment of an immanent and active divine presence in the evolution of the world and its inhabitants, and the call to creative engagement with the possibilities for progress and beauty where we now live. The essays cover important topics in Christian theology and philosophy of religion as well as interreligious dialogue, pastoral care, spirituality, the diversity of human experience, and cultural forms such as economics, politics, and the arts. Through the Handbook of Process Theology readers will gain an appreciation of the richness and scope of the process approach to spiritual living. Contributors include: Ronald J. Allen, Donna Bowman, Kathlyn A. Breazeale, Paul Custodio Bube, John B. Cobb Jr., Monica A. Coleman, John Culp, Bruce G. Epperly, David Ray Griffin, Lucinda A. Huffaker, Carol Johnston, Jeffrey D. Long, Sandra B. Lubarsky, Jay McDaniel, Mary Elizabeth Mullino Moore, Leslie A. Muray, Thomas Jay Oord, Russell Pregeant, David E. Roy, and Clark Williamson.

In addition to providing readable introductions to process theology's key insights on the divine, the world, and the human condition, this handbook provides process perspectives on ethics, politics, interreligious dialogue, the arts, economics, and other unexpected areas. The editors hope that these essays reveal the promise of process theology for religious growth, and that readers will be spurred to dig deeper into the rich and diverse literature of process thought.
