God for an Old Man by Thomas M. Dicken

God for an Old Man blends elements of careful academic thought about God with elements of personal autobiography and memoir. The author is deeply influenced by modern process thought about God, stemming from the thought of Alfred North Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne, but he also describes his own life as a child, adult, and now a person entering his eighties. The central premise is that a person cannot write about a meaningful God without taking seriously the meaning, conflict, loss, and joy in one's own life. Thomas M. Dicken is immersed in both literature and visual art. He explores the ways in which art and literature can evoke a sense of ultimacy, even though we can never attain certain knowledge of the ultimate. Just as the psychiatrist Erik Erikson wrote about major stages in human lives, Dicken writes with a sense of fulfillment about the insights and values of old age. Old age is the age of wisdom, a time for offering younger people the insight that all the stages of life have been very much worth living. This is not a book of easy or dogmatic answers; it is a book of honest exploration.
