It is ironic but true that most theologians do not understand God in the same way as is being criticized so heavily in such works as Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion. In fact, argues Richard Grigg, most theologians left behind an unalloyed, classical theism about two hundred years ago.Yet, Grigg argues, the many efforts to reconcile contemporary scientific worldviews with Christian faith stop shy of the radical reconception of God begun in contemporary theology and made necessary by contemporary science. Grigg's erudite and provocative book calls for a more radical theology, in which notions of divine transcendence and immanence, personhood, power, and role in the evolving universe are radicalized and reconceived. Building on the work of such theologians as Sallie McFague and Gordon Kaufman, and with a strong grasp of the particulars of contemporary cosmology and biology, Grigg's exciting work challenges us to an intellectual honesty as sturdy as our faith.
