"This book represents the first serious and systematic encounter between Judaism and process thought yet offered. The essays are uniformly insightful. Indeed, the essays by persons trained explicitly in process thought are particularly important for introducing this area of theology to Jewish readers, both lay and academic. As Lubarsky indicates in her introduction, this is particularly important because process thought may well make seminal contributions to the development of Jewish thought in the future. This book will be an important and crucial stimulus to that development." --David Ellenson, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
