The Becoming of God
Process Theology, Philosophy, and Multireligious Engagement
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Again the bottomless becomingness, the compassionate adventurousness, the insistent poetics of Roland Faber's thinking--indeed of his God--offer themselves to us in language. He echoes and interprets the language of process theology, but with a 'transreligious' difference. Whitehead might find himself mysteriously refreshed in these genial 'contours of becoming.'"
--Catherine Keller, Drew University; author of Cloud of the Impossible
"Faber is one of the most creative theologians alive, and The Becoming of God is a masterful engagement with Whitehead. Through sixteen profound Explorations, he explains how Whitehead's ideas about God remain vitally important for contemporary understandings of philosophy, science, and religion. The book culminates with Faber's own theo-poetics, including his important conception of God as Poet of the World."
--Clayton Crockett, University of Central Arkansas
"It would be impossible to exaggerate how deeply the present is a time of intellectual renewal and innovation. This is nowhere more apparent than in matters pertaining to revising and interrogating conceptions of divinity. And this is nowhere more manifest than in the work of Roland Faber. He is at once deeply rooted in the process tradition and singularly innovative. The Becoming of God is a magisterial and breathtaking feat of theoretical imagination while being a work of impressive erudition and painstaking argumentation."
--Vincent Colapietro, Pennsylvania State University
