The Creative Suffering of God

Paul S. Fiddes

The theme that God suffers with his world has become a familiar one in recent years, overturning centuries of belief in an impassible deity. This book points the way to new directions in the idea of divine suffering while surveying current trends of thought on the subject in German theology, American process theology, "the death of God" theology, and the theology of modern followers of classical theism.
