On Evil, Providence, and Freedom
A New Reading of Molina
Mark B. Wiebe
“Mark Wiebe has provided a cogent, thoughtful, and thought-provoking restatement of Molinism that responds to its theological and philosophical critics.”—Ronald Highfield, Pepperdine University
"Readers and scholars will continue to wrestle with historical and current debates about Christian providence and human free will. On Evil, Providence, and Freedom will enrich these theological discussions in important directions. Anyone interested in such prominent subjects in the Christian tradition will do well to visit the pages of Wiebe’s work.”—Reading Religion
This original study is concerned with the reconciliation of divine providence, grace, and free will. Mark Wiebe explores, develops, and defends Luis de Molina’s work in these areas, and bridges the main sixteenth-century conversations surrounding Molina’s writings with relevant sets of arguments in contemporary philosophical
theology and philosophy of religion. The result fills a gap between theologians and philosophers working in related areas of study and is a unique contribution to the field of analytic theology.
