Item Description...
Marjorie Suchockis groundbreaking 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 Suchockis 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. The opinions expressed here range from affirmations of process theology to direct challenges to the legitimacy of framing Christian eschatology in this way. The book also includes an important afterword in which Suchocki responds to her colleagues and critics, especially those proposing new process-oriented understandings of Christian eschatology.

Both engaged and engaging, "World without End" will encourage natural scientists, classically trained Christian theologians, and process theologians to rethink their basic presuppositions about the end of the world and the future of the human race.

Contributors: Joseph A. Bracken, S.J., Anna Case-Winters, Philip Clayton, Roland Faber, Lewis S. Ford, John F. Haught, Catherine Keller, Jrgen Moltmann, Robert Cummings Neville, Marjorie Hewitt Suchocki

More About Joseph A. Bracken

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo!

Joseph A. Bracken, SJ, is a retired professor of theology and director emeritus of the Edward B. Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is the author of seven books and editor or coeditor of two other works in the area of philosophical theology. His focus in recent years has been on the God-world relationship both as it figures in the religion and science debate and in interreligious dialogue. He is a long-time student of the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead but has modified it in some measure so as to make it more compatible with traditional Christian beliefs such as creation out of nothing, the doctrine of the Trinity, and eschatology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Process Eschatology Critiqued and Defended  Mar 30, 2009
In this work, Marjorie Hewitt Suchocki's process eschatology (as outlined in her book entitled "The End of Evil") is critiqued by several prominent process theologians. Overall, I found the essays to be very engaging and thought-provoking. That being said, several essays stand out:

- "The End of Evil" by Joseph Bracken. This essay provides a good summary to Suchocki's process eschatology.

- "Subjective Immortality in a Neo-Whiteheadian Context" by Joseph Bracken. Here Brackens draws inspiration from Suchocki's work and outlines his metaphysics of intersubjectivity which allows not only for objective immortality but also for subjective immortality.

- "God's Avent/ure: The End of Evil and the Origin of Time" by Roland Faber. This is a gem! Here Faber basically tackles the paradox of time - i.e "How can that which is without beginning and end have both a beginning and an end?"

- "An Alternate Theory of Subjective Immortality" by Lewis Ford. Here Ford provides a trenchant analysis of what constitutes subjectivity and superjectivity (i.e. objectivity) in Whitehead's scheme.

I highly recommend this for the serious student of process theology.
