Reviews - What do customers think about God, Passibility and Corporeality (Studies in Philosophical Theology)?

One of the First  Feb 24, 2006
This book was actually Sarot's doctoral thesis. Despite entering the field with such a controversial topic, Sarot has actually gone on to be quite the theological scholar.
Sarot does a good job of using very, very careful language throughout the text. He doesn't want to put anyone off with matter-of-fact tone on such a new and "unique" thesis: that to believe in a passible God might require a belief in an embodied God (gasp!).
Writing carefully, Sarot builds his argument bit by bit, starting with passibility, moving to how it might relate to corporeality, drawing the necessary relation between the two, and finally showing the reader various ways and various authors that have tried to make the idea plausible. Among the few converging include Charles Hartshorne, of course, and Grace Jantzen, who is probably the only other author to beat Sarot to the corporeal punch.
For anyone interested in Pinnock's brief mentioning of an embodied God in "Most Mover Mover," this might be a good place to see a full exegesis on the subject.
I don't know if Sarot subscribes to oppeness theology, this book was published a little before the movement began.
Unlike many theological discussions, Sarot writes with very readable diction and a very easy-to-follow organization from start to finish.
So, while most are probably going to disagree strongly with what Sarot is trying to put forward, it is nonetheless, an interesting read and one of the first and only books on embodiment. The only others to even mention the idea have been Pinnock, Swinburne, Jantzen, and David Paulsen.
