ST Symposium, Oliver Crisp

Against Panentheism

In this paper I offer an argument against panentheism. Although the doctrine has proven difficult to define, I provide a working definition of the view, and proceed to argue that given this way of thinking about the doctrine, it has serious theological drawbacks. I then explore some of these theological drawbacks. In a final section I give some reasons for thinking that the classical theistic alternative to panentheism is preferable, all things considered.


This lecture is free and open to the public.
