Christian Cyclopedia

About the Cyclopedia

Brightman, Edgar Sheffield

(1884–1953). Philos.; prof. Boston 1919. Advocated personalism. God is creative, supreme, personal, but also limited, or finite; involved in cosmic evolution; time enters His very being. Since existence exhibits conflict, God is involved in struggle and victory, thus including redemption by the cross. Works include Religious Values; The Problem of God; Moral Laws; A Philosophy of Religion; Person and Reality.
