Theologians continue to debate the question of divine action in a law-governed world. Chapter 1 explains why philosophy needs to be more involved in the conversation. The most important reason is that foundational issues are seldom addressed in the science and religion literature. For example, while many deny that God would violate the laws of nature, few offer any analysis of the nature of the laws of nature – a topic widely discussed by philosophers of science. The chapter explains three broad approaches to how divine action relates to the laws that will be used throughout the book and ends with an overview of each chapter.
