Rather than think that God must always do the same thing, we may think of God relating differently but appropriately to every level of organization of the universe. He may operate in a deterministic way at some points and in an indeterminate way at other points.
Harry Lee Poe and Jimmy H. Davis, God and the Cosmos: Divine Activity in Space, Time and History (Downers Grove, IL: IVP Academic, 2012), p. 120
I’m sympathetic to this claim, but further elucidation is necessary, namely, how do we know when and at what level God operates deterministically or indeterministically? Of course, at this early stage in God and the Cosmos, this claim appears more to indicate what’s to come in the later stages of the book. There’s also an echo here from John Sanders’s The God Who Risks. I haven’t read this book since, ooh, 2002 or 2003, but I’m sure Sanders argues that God determines some things but not others. Can anyone help me out here on this latter point?
