Description

"A festival of a book.... Addictively and accessibly readable, adventurously faithful to the scientific and to the biblical heritage, [it] guides us all--spiritual seekers and skeptics, congregations and classes--to a celebration of our shared, fragile and gorgeous creaturehood."
--Catherine Keller, professor of constructive theology, Drew University; author, On the Mystery: Discerning Divinity in Process

"Explains recent scientific developments in accessible ways.... Draws richly on the Jewish past while pointing toward--and so helping to create--an affirmative future."
--Rabbi Deborah Waxman, PhD, president, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and Jewish Reconstructionist Communities

"Process Theology joins Jewish scholarship in a stimulating investigation of creation. Beautifully written, informative, lucid, eminently readable--read it!"
--Francisco J. Ayala, PhD, Donald Bren Professor of Biological Sciences, University of California, Irvine

"This book does something new and long overdue: it brings together Judaism, modern cosmology and Process Theology.... Rich in spiritual and ethical conclusions."
--Howard Smith, PhD, senior astrophysicist, Harvard-Smithsonian Center; author, Let There Be Light: Modern Cosmology and Kabbalah, a New Conversation between Science and Religion

"Artson's book is refreshing in that his ideas are not confined by modern science. Indeed, he considers the possibility that perhaps Process Theology encompasses what will one day be understood within the confines of science. Those who are skeptical may not be convinced but it will certainly give them pause."
--Ira Z. Rothstein, PhD, professor of physics, Carnegie Mellon University
