    One thought on “Process Theology: A Guide for the Perplexed”

    1. For a long time, I have been looking for a way to bridge the gap between the New Age/New Thought mysticism that has been so inspiring to me and the Christian faith of my childhood and heritage. Process theology fills that gap, and this book is an excellent introduction. I was a philosophy major, though, and regularly read philosophy and theology just for my enjoyment. I would not recommend this to someone unfamiliar with reading that type of work.

    2. Process Theology has been for many of us a rather complex and often incomprehensible theological system. It seeks to offer a theological perspective that speaks to and is conversant with the modern age, especially bringing into the discussion science and religious pluralism, but it too often one has had to almost learn a new theological language to make sense of the ideas. Bruce Epperly has done a nice job in helping us understand the basic principles of Process Theology by doing some "translati [...]

    3. A really great book for anyone interested in understanding Process Theology. Process Thought began with a cleva so and so called Alfred North Whitehead (platoanford/entries/whi). Process Theologians have researched as to how this enables Christians to have a deeper and more coherant understanding of God and the unfolding of God's work in our lives. It is not an exposition of Whiteheads Philosophy - for that I have ordered: Key to Whitehead's "Process and Reality"Donald W. Sherburne. The style of [...]

    4. I choose this book as my first venture into the world of Process Thought. If you are wanting an introduction to some of the basic theological tenets of PT this might not be the greatest. Bruce Epperly has constructed a "Christian" pantheistic worldview, with Process Thought as its foundation, so it has a distinctively "Christian" flavor. If you're curious as to how one may attempt to reconcile the Bible, Jesus, the Trinity, life after death, etc. with Process Thought, this book will interest you [...]

    5. Process Theology can be a difficult subject to read about. Process authors can write in such dense Whiteheadian jargon that their work requires decoding. They are often guilty of writing about concepts anyone can understand while using language no one understands. This book is a worthwhile introduction to the subject written mostly in plain, clear language. If you need a foot-in-the-door intro to Process thought or an approachable refresher course, this is a good one.

    6. I would have liked to have rated this book higher but the rather sloppy production values made this a less enjoyable read than it should have been. Frequent typos and garbled syntax lead me to think that a cursory proofread was given before publication. In addition, I think there is probably better intros to process theology than this.With that said, I did enjoy much of the book as I identify with much of process theology.

    7. Too much "pop religion" and not enough metaphysics. More of an intro to an intro for those without any philosophy background. Could still be useful to some.

    8. Started reading this today. I think Process Theology is a much better way to think about God than Classical Theism
