In a lucid and comprehensive study, Professor Viney presents an excellent critical analysis of Hartshorne’s thought about God. Demonstrating his thesis from many points of view (ontological, cosmological, teleological, moral, aesthetic, etc.), Viney deftly illustrates Hartshorne’s belief that any one argument for God is inconclusive, but that many woven together make up a convincing interpretative expression of the world.
