This is an introductory guide to Process Theology for undergraduates. As part of "Contiuum's 'Guide for the Perplexed'" series, this text provides an accessible introduction to process theology, aimed at nurturing the theological imagination of undergraduates, pastors and interested laypersons. It describes the major themes of process theology and relates them to the everyday lives and spiritual commitments of people today. In addition to addressing traditional theological issues, Epperly addresses cutting edge issues in theology and ethics such as pluralism and postmodernism, matters of life and death, science (technology and genetics), and emerging forms of Christianity. This text is designed for seminary and university classes as well as congregational study. It will help readers to overcome the obstacles created by the technical language often employed by process theologians. "Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Process theology comes in many forms. Some technical philosophical forms confuse more than enlighten. Bruce Epperly offers his own form of process theology in accessible narrative and confessional prose. The anecdotes, case studies, and stories bring alive process perspectives on crucial issues of our time. This book should further establish and expand process theology's standing as a persuasive alternative for making sense of God and the many dimensions and questions of our existence.' -Thomas Jay Oord, Ph.D. Author of 'The Nature of Love: A Theology' (Chalice) and 'Defining Love: Philosophical, Scientific, and Theological Engagement' (Brazos)--Sanford Lakoff
'Unbelievable: Bruce Epperly really succeeds at communicating process theology in its full breadth and depth, in ways that will satisfy newcomers and advanced students alike. Yet he does it almost wholly without the use of technical terms! Epperly's writing flows beautifully. It's laced with personal examples and replete with its own Whiteheadian moments, such as "Reality is profoundly ecological" or "In each moment, we are artists of our experience" .... Perhaps the best in-depth introduction to process theology available for non-specialists.' - Philip Clayton, Ingraham Professor, Claremont School of Theology, USA--Sanford Lakoff
'Given that process theology (PT) has earned a reputation for being one of the least accessible theological movements, Bruce Epperly does a good job in helping to clarify the main arguments and translating the vocabulary into something akin to everyday usage.'--Sanford Lakoff
