Preview

This chapter deals with the questions of God's relatedness to the world, His mutability, and the resulting finitude of His “consequent nature.” Process thinkers believe that God is really related to the world in His intentional consciousness and God is contingently different in his “eternal Now,” because of what happens in the created world.

Keywords: God–human relationship; mutability; world enrichment; relatedness; process thinkers
