Thinking About Divine Action: An Attempt to Dissolve the Problem

The problem of divine action considers how God interacts with the world. I’m not talking about miraculous interventions like the resurrection of Jesus, but the providence with which God governs and directs the normal course of things for which there are increasingly complete scientific explanations. For example, how do we understand God’s role in creating human beings through an evolutionary process? This is a difficult question, but I’ll suggest we exacerbate it when we confuse scientific explanations with personal explanations.

By providing books, online resources, and digital media of high quality, BioLogos is an invaluable resource in my work with both Christian students and those investigating Christianity. In BioLogos, students see modeled before them a Psalm 19 way of thinking: that both God’s world and his word declare his glory.
