Divine Action and Operative Grace

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Operative grace is generally considered to be a paradigm example of
special divine action. In this paper, we suggest one reason to think
operative grace might be consistent with general divine action alone.
On our view, then, a deist can consistently believe in a doctrine of
saving faith.
