About Providence, Divine Action and the Church


In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.

A Postdoctorate in Edinburgh, and More on David Fergusson and Providence

After looking at details of a postdoctorate available at the University of Edinburgh (H/T Michael Bird), I thought I’d have a quick peek at David Fergusson’s page on the Divinity website to see what he’s up to; after all, he’s done so much writing recently on the doctrine, it would have been improper for me not to do so. According to his page, Fergusson is working on three main publications: a monograph on the theology of providence, based on the 2009 Warfield Lectures; the Cambridge Companion to Reformed Theology (with Paul Nimmo); and a textbook on the theology of creation (Eerdmans). I’m looking forward especially to seeing the Warfield Lectures in print.

In Fergusson’s list of recent publications, there’s also the following essay: ‘The Reformed Doctrine of Providence: From Calvin to Barth’, in Theo Doer, Heleen Maat, Alco Meesters & Jan Muis (eds.), Van God gesproken: Over religieuze taal enrelationele theologie (Zoetermeer: Uitgeverij Boekencentrum, 2011), pp. 233–245. I’d appreciate it if someone could send me a copy of this (please!), assuming they have access to it.
