Recent efforts to talk about the self in a postmodern dialect have created a dilemma: How can one conceptualize the human self as multiple, fluid, contextual, and radically relational while also maintaining that it is intentional, private, focused, and accountable? Creative Dwelling weaves elements of feminist psychology and process theology into a dynamic interdiscplinary dialogue about human subjectivity. The result brings a new coherence and vitality to our search for more inclusive and adequate ways of understanding our humanity. The theologicl implications are profound: the dynamics of empathy and clarity impel the author to reframe characteristics of the divine nature, sin, salvation, and spirituality. The book culminates in a study of "dwelling" as a new, iconoclastic, and visionary metaphor for our experiences of the ever-emerging self.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this rich study, Lucinda Huffaker weaves together insights from feminist theory, process theology, and contemporary psychology. Her goal is to foster ongoing conversations, but she may do better than that and generate some new conversations among people who have discovered from her work what they have to learn from each other. * William C. Placher, Wabash College *
The tapestry Huffaker weaves from many important voices on God and self is wonderful to behold. * Carrie Doehring, Boston University *
