Has anyone read this: In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being: Panentheistic Reflections on God's Presence in a Scientific World

Quote
Foreword by Mary Ann Meyers Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in the doctrine of panentheism - the belief that the world is contained within the Divine, although God is also more than the world. Here for the first time leading scientists and theologians meet to debate the merits of this compelling new understanding of the God-world relation.

God be merciful to us sinners.

the best way of conveying God's love to people is through your own presence and deeds.

I haven't read it, sorry. :) Though I would hardly call several thousand years old a "new understanding"!
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
