Toward an Agapist Alternative to Mark Murphy’s Holiness Framework for Divine Action
In the exceptional book Divine Holiness and Divine Action, Mark Murphy defends what he calls the holiness framework for divine action. The purpose of our essay-response to Murphy’s book is to consider an alternative framework for divine action, what we call the agapist framework. We argue that the latter framework is more probable than Murphy’s holiness framework with respect to select theological desiderata.
