Process Theology

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A modern theological movement which emphasizes the processive or evolutionary nature of humanity and the world, and holds that God Himself is in process of development through His intercourse with the changing world. It originated in the USA, especially in the University of Chicago during the 1920s and 1930s. Its concept of God stresses His relationships with creation, His capacity to ‘surpass’ Himself (but in respect of other entities to remain ‘unsurpassable’), His ‘bi-polar’ nature, and His primary attribute as love rather than uncreatedness.

Subjects: Christianity.
