I am beyond excited about the upcoming class with our guest in this episode – John Cobb. This is the very first interview I ever recorded with Cobb and in it we discuss a process account of the incarnation, Kin-dom of God, and other Christological goodies.
You will likely notice how my accent has changed in the last 12 years of podcasting and moves from North Carolina to Los Angeles and then to Edinburgh.
Don’t forget to check out Cobb’s recent visit to answer the question “Why Whitehead?”
John Cobb taught theology at the Claremont School of Theology from 1958 to 1990. In 2014 he became the first theologian elected to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences for his interdisciplinary work in ecology, economics, and biology. He has published over 30 books including the first full length text in eco-philosophy.
In 1973, with David Griffin, he established the Center for Process Studies. In retirement he lives at Pilgrim Place in Claremont, California. Throughout his career he has contributed to Whitehead scholarship and promoted process-relational programs and organizations. Most recently, he helped found the Claremont Institute for Process Studies, and has been heavily involved in supporting work toward the goal of China becoming an ecological civilization.
