“A clear and sensitive justification of process philosophy’s relevance to contemporary Catholic theology.” —John F. Haught

What does it mean to be “made in the image and likeness of God”? How has the world talked about God over the ages? What do the life and teachings of Jesus say about the nature of God? Do the “new sciences” diminish or affirm Christianity’s understanding of God?

Through the lens of “catholicity,” an aware­ness of our fundamental wholeness in God, Fr. Hosinski surveys our evolving understandings of God, casting light on our knowledge of the universe as revealed in physics, cosmology, and biology, particularly the theory of evolution. Here is a holistic understanding of God com­patible with the implications of contemporary science that, remarkably, advances an under­standing that is harmonious with the implica­tions of Jesus’ own life and teachings.

Thomas E. Hosinski, CSC, is professor emeri­tus of theology at the University of Portland (OR). He is the author of Stubborn Fact and Creative Advance: An Introduction to the Meta­physics of Alfred North Whitehead (Rowman & Littlefield).

"Hosinski fuses the process philosophy of Whitehead, sacred scripture and the Catholic tradition, and modern science to provide a context that accommodates all of these in a rational and coherent system."
"A fascinating dialogue with modern scientific discovery as well as a revision of Whitehead's theology that is palpable to Christians committed to the Catholic tradition.... challenging and at times controversial."
