    • 1964, Charles Hartshorne, Man's Vision of God and the Logic of Theism, p. 348:
      Just as [absolute perfection in some respects, relative perfection in all others] is the whole positive content of perfection, so CW, or the conception of the Creator-and-the-Whole-of-what-he-has-created as constituting one life, the super-whole which in its everlasting essence is uncreated (and does not necessitate just the parts which the whole has) but in its de facto concreteness is created - this panentheistic doctrine contains all of deism and pandeism except their arbitrary negations.
    • 1967, Francis E. Peters, Greek Philosophical Terms: A Historical Lexicon, p. 169:

    • 1991, J. Sidlow Baxter, The Most Critical Issue:

    • 2005, Conrad Baker, The Three Powers Of Armageddon : An Exposition of Revelation 16:13-16:
