Abstract:

"Marjorie Suchocki's work The End of Evil provides the backdrop for this high-powered discussion of the usefulness of process thought for understanding Christian eschatology in light of postmodernism and contemporary natural science." "Taking as their starting point the metaphysics of Alfred North Whitehead as well as Suchocki's creative adaptation of his thought, nine distinguished philosophers and theologians look hard at the theoretical assumptions of Christian eschatology and ask if process thought provides a more suitable language for restating these classic teachings today."--Jacket.
