Contemporary Perspectives on Chance, Providence and Free Will - A critique of some modern authors

Jonathan Doye , Ian Goldby , Christina Line , Stephen Lloyd , Paul Shellard , David Tricker ,
S & CB 7 (2)
October 1995


We discuss the implications of modern science for the doctrine of providence by examining the writings of the late Donald MacKay, Arthur Peacocke, and John PoIkinghome. We summarise their views on the Origin of human freedom, the nature of divine action and the relationship of God to his creation. We endeavour to weigh the scientific merits and biblical compatibility of these views.
