Book by Thompson Curtis L Cuff Joyce M


"Cuff and Thompson, drawing on more than twenty-five years of close collaborative work, have producedA a beautifully integrated book characterized by cosmic sweep and featuring exceptionally rich detail in theme and source. This philosophical theology of nature, pondering deeply emergence as viewed in relation to chaos andA complexity theory, proposes a God who promises possibility to the .evolving creation.A The constructive argument, while appreciating the contributions of pantheism and panentheism, programmaticallyA articulates a pantransentheism of the Spirit in which theA transformationalA praxis of love marks the faithful co-creator." - Paul Sponheim, Professor Emeritus, Systematic Theology, Luther Seminary, USA. "This is a courageous and stimulating book, and it is, at least in part, stimulating, because it is courageous! Its major argument is rooted in an ongoing and literarily reproduced conversation between two authors from both a scientific and a theological background - authors who do not only understand their respective craft very well, but are also capable of taking their readers on a stylistically accessible, methodically reflected and thematically exciting journey into hitherto unknown territory of research. Led by and persuasively arguing for the belief that creativity and transformation within an ever emerging reality cannot be fully grasped without taking into account "the divine promise of possibility," the authors refuse to give in to the currently dominant trends of naturalistic reductionism. Instead they dare to freely and competently speak out in favor of a nonreductive science of nature and its promises for a "theological naturalism." Highly recommended, both for scientists, philosophers and theologians!" Dr. Heiko Schulz, Department of Protestant Theology, Goethe-Universitat Frankfurt, Germany. "This book is encyclopedic in its range of topics.A In the early chaptersA the results ofA recent research in a wide range of natural sciences from particle physics toA A ecosystems are explained in relatively plain language. The later chapters offer a theoretical frame of reference for interpreting the scientific data through insights about the God-world relationship from a long list of Western philosophersA and theologians.A One could question, of course, whether the philosophical notion of religious naturalism is fully compatible with the Biblical understanding of the God-world relationship.A But Cuff and Thompson are in any case to be praised for their claimA that cooperation and "consilience" (creativity) are just as important as competition and natural selectionA for understanding the evolutionaryA processA and the way in which a Creative/Creator God over time brings it to fruition." -Joseph A. Bracken, S.J., Emeritus Professor of Theology, Xavier University, USA
