In the second edition of A Christian Natural Theology
, John Cobb offers substantive changes at key points on which his current views are clearly different from those reflected earlier. When the first edition appeared in 1965, it was a groundbreaking work that incorporated Alfred North Whitehead's metaphysical philosophy as a framework for developing a Christian natural theology. The work was so significant it helped to launch process theology as a leading alternative to neo-orthodox theology and has since become a classic in the literature of process theology. This new edition by one of America's preeminent theologians is an essential work for all those studying process theology.
John B. Cobb Jr. is Ingraham Professor of Theology Emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology and cofounder of the Center for Process Studies. He is the author or coauthor of more than thirty books, including The American Empire and the Commonwealth of God and Process Theology: An Introductory Exposition.
