I just read with interest much of the book the God of Miracle by Jack
Collins. The book seems to be well read, written and researched. I
found his definitions of positions take vis a vis God and creation and
reasonable categorization. I think he is a supernaturalist. By his
definition I would be more of an occassionalist although I am not sure I
fit well into his definitions.
In any case I am planning on annotating it for a bibliography on science
and Christianity that I use for my classes (if any you are interested
in seeing it do let me know). I know his position in Old Testament at a
good seminary, Covenant Seminary but I don't have a feel for his
academic reputation. Also if anyone has any feedback on the book, The
God of Miracles, I would appreciate your opinions. I know he leans a bit
toward ID, but that is fairly obvious in the book.
Unless the comments are of general interest to the group, why don't you
send me private e-mail to my home address.
