Grigg argues that the many efforts to reconcile contemporary scientific worldviews with Christian faith stop shy of the radical reconception of God begun in contemporary theology and made necessary by contemporary science. Grigg's book calls for a more radical theology, in which notions of divine transcendence and immanence, personhood, power, and role in the evolving universe are radicalized and reconceived. Building on the work of such theologians as Sallie McFague and Gordon Kaufman, and with a strong grasp of the particulars of contemporary cosmology and biology, Grigg's work challenges us to an intellectual honesty as sturdy as our faith.
