Chapter 7 completes the narrative. The model of divine action presented has its roots in the historical development of the laws of nature as an idea in science (Chapter 4) and has a ready place within the current metaphysical landscape (Chapter 5). Coupling an early modern view of laws with a mathematical understanding of determinism (Chapter 6) yields the neoclassical model of special divine action. It is nonviolationist yet not dependent on indeterministic physics. One objection is that, prima facie, the model violates the conservation of energy. Understanding why this is not the case requires some undoing of the conventional wisdom regarding conservation.
