It is getting near the most epic of the HBC online classes. As part of the celebration – and the emails I got saying MORE PODCASTS BECAUSE I AM SELF-DISTANCING – I combined two of my favorite previous visits into this episode. First you hear John Cobb give a theo-philosophical sermon on the materializing trajectory of Christianity. Then liberal Reformed Theologian, Paul Capetz, joins me for the conversation in which we discuss the trinity, Religious Pluralism, The importance of the Incarnation, Discuss fall of the Mainline Churches, Liberalism? Progressive?, and the Mission of the Church.

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.
