Class Description

Based on the United Methodist Theologian and Philosopher John B. Cobb, Jr.’s “definitive book on the nature of God,” this course provides a lay person’s introduction to Process-Relational theology, a theological school of thought that has broad appeal with the Wesleyan tradition. In this course, we will work our way through Dr. Cobb’s vision God as proclaimed in the ministry of Jesus and how that vision of God can help us become forces of positive transformation in the world guided by persuasive love. This course is designed as a continuing education course for certified lay ministers, and clergy. Students are required to have access to a copy of Jesus’ Abba: The God Who Has Not Failed by John Cobb.
