A Counter-response on ‘‘The Divine Action Project’’1 1


I am grateful to Phil Clayton, John Polkinghorne, Bill Stoeger, and Tom Tracy for thoughtful responses (in Theology and Science 2, no. 2) to my survey of the Divine Action Project (in Theology and Science 2, no. 2). The diversity and high quality of these responses gives an indication of the marvelously rich and complex discussion that the Divine Action Project has engendered among both its participants and those who shared in the project through its publications. My counter-response is partial, inevitably, but focused on what I take to be vital issues for the ongoing debate. I begin with a slightly technical response to Polkinghorne and subsequently move toward more theological territory. Less technically minded readers might want to skip a few pages and begin with my reply to Tracy, returning later to the Polkinghorne discussion.
