In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Additional Praise for The World in the Trinity “Our Trinitarian God is in the world, and the world is in God. Just how do we explain this so that God doesn’t get stuck in the world, like a fly gets stuck in flypaper? Joe Bracken has been trying to explain this for decades. This is his most thoughtful and illuminating explanation yet.” Ted Peters Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union “In this bold volume, Joseph Bracken seeks to do in our day what St. Thomas did in his: to interpret classical Christian doctrine using the best of contemporary scientific and philosophical resources. The escalating warfare between naturalists and supernaturalists will end, he suggests, only if science and theology both embrace a shared metaphysic built on integrated systems or processes of activity. In chapter after chapter, Bracken effectively demonstrates the fruitfulness of these new concepts for overcoming traditional challenges to the theology of the Incarnation, the Trinity, the church, miracles, resurrection, and life after death. A cutting-edge contribution to today’s theology-science dialogue…” Philip Clayton Claremont School of Theology The World in the Trinity The World in the Trinity Open-Ended Systems in Science and Religion Joseph A.
