- Publisher This is the first book to develop the doctrine of election from the perspective of process theology. It takes Barth's interpretation of election as an expression of the Reformed tradition and argues that the thought of Alfred Lord Whitehead (the founder of process thought) provides a way of capturing what is best in Barth, while going beyond his formulations to recover the importance of the creature's response to God's electing act.

- Publisher This work develops a doctrine of election from the perspectives of Process Theology and Alfred North Whitehead. It uses Karl Barth's interpreation of election as an expression of the Reformed tradition and argues that Whitehead's thought provides a way of capturing what is best in Barth and going beyond his formulations while showing election to be central to the Christian faith.
