Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0313387427, Hardcover)

Though seemingly complicated, process theology offers a worldview that is attractive to Christians seeking a better understanding of their faith in the context of science and the challenges of the "new atheism." Something That Matters: A Theology for Critical BelieverS≪/i> makes both this worldview and its applications for life today accessible to the lay reader.

The book's argument is built around the conviction that we are all "something that matters," that humans make a difference in the world, and hence in the life of God. The book addresses a broad range of topics important to Christian theology: faith, religion, God, Christ, the Trinity, prayer, the ethical life, what it means to be human, and our ultimate destiny (eschatology). It also includes a chapter on the development and basic ideas of "process philosophy," which informs this theology. Incorporating insights from the sciences, as well as from the Bible, this critical reevaluation brings the Christian proclamation to life for a modern world.
