Although Process thought has been around for centuries (it might even claim as far back as Heraclitus), it isn’t until the 20th century that it came into its own. Since then it has captured the imagination of theologians, professors. and pastors, including Dr. Bruce Epperly, who happens to be all three!
In this episode, we discuss the state of Process today and look to what the future may hold. There is a convocation of Process theologians meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska, this week, and we will be commenting on the proceedings there in the coming episodes.
Our publisher, Energion Publications, is offering a free copy of Dr. Epperly’s book, “Process Theology: Embracing Adventure with God,” to the first person to comment on this episode.

In this brief, lively, and engaging book, Dr. Bruce Epperly untangles the difficult concepts of process theology and shows how we can envision a God who is in relation to us throughout our lives here and in the next world. He believes that “God is present at the moment of our conception, guides us through the adventures of this lifetime, urging us to rejoice in embodiment and bring healing to our world, and upon our final earthly breath receives us with open arms with visions of future adventures in communion with God and our fellow creatures.” Not only is this theology easy to understand, it challenges us to live out God’s adventure in with joy, sharing God’s life with all of God’s creatures.
