Joseph_BrackenDr. Joseph A. Bracken, S.J. is a retired Xavier University professor of theology, and author of many books on philosophical theology, including God: Three Who are One, which we discuss this week. I got a chance to read it for the Transforming Theology Theo-Blogger Consortium last spring.

We begin our conversation with Moltmann’s theology and Joe explains how Alfred North Whitehead’s philosophy provides a good framework for understanding the differentiated unity in the Trinity and in creation, which speaks meaningfully of life in a pluralistic 21st century world.

Other writings mentioned:

Subjectivity, Objectivity, and Intersubjectivity: A New Paradigm for Religion and Science

Trinity in Process, edited by Joseph A. Bracken and Marjorie Suchocki
