Trinity in Process: A Relational Theology of God

Front Cover
Joseph A. Bracken, Marjorie Suchocki
Continuum, 1997 - Religion - 236 pages
In the last three decades, the focus of attention in systematic theology has moved from the church to Christ, and more recently to God and the God-world relationship. Central to the new focus is the search for an appropriate metaphysics is to explain how God can be genuinely reponsive to events in this world and at the same time utterly transcendent. Here process-oriented thinkers provide a new view of an ancient doctrine.
