I would encourage people to get the most recent issue of Christian
Scholar's Review. It has an extended article on methodological
naturalism that takes exactly this line of argument. The article is
Patrick McDonald & Nivaldo Tro, 2009, In Defense of Methodological
Naturalism": Christian Scholar's Review, vol 38, no. 2, pp.201-229.
