Overview

This book, originally published by The Westminster Press in 1973, was the first full-scale Christology based upon process thought. Its thesis: Whitehead's process philosophy provides a basis for explicating the idea that Jesus of Nazareth is God's decisive self-revelation, in a manner that is consistent with both modern thought and Christian faith. A Process Christology brings together three dimensions of recent theology: the new quest for the historical Jesus, the new-orthodox emphasis on God's self-revealing activity in history, and the theology based primarily on the process philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne. This edition contains a new Preface.

Editorial Reviews

CHOICE
The book is well-organized and carefully argued....This demanding but readable study, requiring little background in the specific topics considered, is recommended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students in religion.
Journal of Ecumenical Studies
[This] book is a good introduction to process thought and to some of the problems of Christology, as well as a careful critique of the positions of Tillich, H. Richard Niebuhr, Bultmann, and Schleiermacher on these issues. The book is carefully argued.
