KIRKUS REVIEW

Maintaining that even those theologies which reject the idea of a Christian natural theology have assumptions that really belong to natural theology , the author presents his case for the construction of a Christian Natural Theology by drawing upon the philosophy of Whitehead. The author does not claim that Whitehead intended to create such a theology, but only that his use of the Whiteheadian body of philosophy is consonant with the philosopher's outlook and method. As such, the book probably falls within the theological perspective known as ""process theology."" The urgency for this study, the author believes, is derived from the fact that traditional categories in which the Christian message has been communicated have lost all meaning for a large segment of our society. The study should be received as a helpful counterbalance to such so-called ""Biblical"" theology today, and should be attractive to theologians, clergy students, and informed laity.
