Four Views on Divine Providence
Four Views on Divine Providence helps readers think theologically about all the issues involved in exploring this doctrine. The point-counterpoint format reveals the assumptions and considerations that drive equally learned and sincere theologians to sharp disagreement. It unearths the genuinely decisive issues beneath an often superficial debate.
Volume contributors Include:
- Paul Helseth (God causes every creaturely event that occurs)
- William Lane Craig (through his 'middle knowledge,' God controls the course of worldly affairs without predetermining any creatures' free decisions)
- Ron Highfield (God controls creatures by liberating their decision-making)
- Gregory Boyd (human decisions can be free only if God neither determines nor knows what they will be)
Introductory and closing essays by Dennis Jowers give relevant background and guide readers toward their own informed beliefs about divine providence.
