A Modern Relation of Theology and Science Assisted by Emergence and Kenosis

  • By Bradford McCall
How should we attempt to understand the relationship between theology and science in the twenty-first century? In this book, I will attempt to answer this question by examining several previous attempts to classify this relationship. I also develop my personal view of the relation, thereafter discussing some Catholic contributions to this project, and then revisit some of my previously published material, highlighting the role of panentheism therein, and noting an emergent implication from the literature: the resultant possibilities for God--an implication that creates space for a broadly relational perspective of the process of emergence. These movements allow me to argue that kenosis and emergence can add to the discussion of understanding the theology and science relationship. Herein, I advocate a monistic process-based view of the overlapping relationship between theology and science. ""Bradford McCall offers a creative and original synthesis in this work. Working with love, emergence, kenosis, and a variety of key theological concepts, McCall offers an original and constructive proposal to make sense of science and theology in our day."" --Thomas Jay Oord, author of The Uncontrolling Love of God ""Universal in scope, yet also a chronicle of critical personal development, the essays in this collection span a decade of fruitful research at the borderlines of theology and science. McCall courageously takes on the conflicting concerns of evolution, emergence, teleology, kenosis, divine action, and pneumatology. The result offers a monistic, process-based and correlational view of the world that speaks loudly to the reconciliation of theology and science."" --Wolfgang Vondey, Director, Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies, University of Birmingham Bradford McCall is a PhD student at Claremont School of Theology, Claremont, California. He is the author of many peer-reviewed journal articles.
