Using the experience of the Christian mystic as a focal point, The Naked Being of God explores the tension between the idea of God as transcendent and unchanging, and the idea of God as imminent and dynamic. Selected texts from classical theology provide a backdrop for the mystical awareness, which ultimately does not fit within the bounds of traditional assumptions. Pseudo-Dionysius, Meister Eckhart, and Marguerite Porete are the mystics examined. The work uses process theology to address these paradoxes.
