The author of this interesting book points out that theologians who, in recent years, have wished to deal with the supernatural in such a way as to avoid cosmology, obscurantism and dualism, have been turning to a study of the transcendence of God. He paints a clear picture of the background of present-day theology- the emphasis upon the immanence of God, so prevalent in the 19th Century and the early part of the 20th, gave way to a realistic theology with its emphasis upon the transcendence of God, largely under the impact of the Depression of the 30's and World War II. The author then turns to a careful analysis and interpretation of some of the leading figures in contemporary theology: Reinhold Niebuhr:- ""God as Transcendent Self and Source""; Paul Tillich:- ""God as Transcendent Ground""; Karl Heim:- ""Transcendence in a Dimensional Metaphor""; Charles Hartshorne:-""God a Dynamic Whole""; Henry N. Wieman:- ""God as Supra-human Event"". His concluding chapter points out the common underlying viewpoint of these divergent thinkers. A valuable commentary on today's theological trends.
