Hass AW (2014) Becoming. In: Peterson DJ, Zbaraschuk GM (ed.). Resurrecting the Death of God: The Origins, Influence, and Return of Radical Theology, Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, pp. 155-172.

Explores the concept of "becoming" in modern thought as an alternative to the immanence-transcendence polarity so persistence in discussions of Western philosophy and theology. The modern conceptions of becoming are briefly worked out from three principal nodes: 1) Hegel, 2) Nietzsche/Heidegger, and 3) Whitehead. They are then applied to a more creative notion of ongoing becoming, a "beginning again", that, in its circular movement, suggests a possible "return to" or "returning of" God through a certain will to art.
