Religions in the Making
Whitehead and the Wisdom Traditions of the World
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Cobb has assembled important essays from scholars representing the major world religions, some senior in their fields and others speaking with the voice of the future. These essays demonstrate the ever-increasing usefulness of Whiteheadian metaphysics for the intellectual life of religion today."
--Robert Neville, Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Theology, Boston University
"Religions in the Making brings a range of voices together to consider . . . how our religions can still surprise us, because our God is creative (of course!) and our future is unscripted. As I read I kept thinking, 'This chapter alone is worth the price of the book.' For both those new to process theology and those well-read, this book will be stimulating and enjoyable."
--Brian D. McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
"The essays in Religions in the Making are rich, thick, and deep. Cobb, whose persistent labor over the past half-century has been to interpret Christian faith and practice through a Whiteheadian-processive lens, has charted the way for the careful and excellent reflections of his essayists. In these chapters we encounter many of the creative ways Whitehead's vision of reality can inform visionary, yet faithful, religious reflection from within a wide variety of traditions."
--Michael Lodahl, Professor of Theology and World Religions, Point Loma Nazarene University
"This collection fulfills, amply and engagingly, the prediction Cobb makes in the preface: 'anyone who puts on Whiteheadian glasses will see the world in fresh and valuable ways.' Wearing such glasses, religious practitioners are enabled to understand, not only themselves, but also each other more deeply and creatively."
--Paul F. Knitter, Professor of Theology, World Religions, and Culture, Union Theological Seminary
