Divine Agency and Divine Action, Volume I

Exploring and Evaluating the Debate

William J. Abraham

  • Shows that the problems arising in treatments of divine action in the Christian tradition stem from failure to come to terms with the concept of action in its openness and in its complexity
  • Argues that the concept of divine action has a variety of context-dependent meanings
  • Explores the history of debate about divine action among key Anglophone philosophers of religion
