I've updated the Phil/Theo Wish List to include several books on the evangelical movement called "Open Theology." I don't know much about it, but it looks like an interesting read of scripture and historical theology. . . not to mention it's use of process philosophy. I think the more orthodox evangelicals have more or less trounced the movement institutionally, but it may prove useful as an example to Catholic liberals who want to rely too heavily on "correlationist" philosophies in theological work.
I ended up using two of my B&N gift cards from Christmas to buy the Japanese metaphysics books. Several faithful readers wrote to express some anxiety about my reading direction: Buddhist metaphysics!!! In my defense: I'm a Dominican. Dominicans read everything with a critical eye. I'm as orthodox now as I have ever been. So, no worries, people!
God bless, Fr. Philip, OP
