Philip Clayton on emergence and "open panentheism"

Clayton's latest book "Adventures In the Spirit" is another on my wish list. I read a lot of reviews on it and what he is proposing as a scientist and theologian is a series of challenges to Christianity, starting with a new understanding of how God works in the world. The old micro-manager God of supernatural theism that is becoming difficult to maintain for some is rejected in favor of a more dynamic God who has poured himself out through all of creation in a participatory, sacrificial mode.
