Since my post on Molinism/Middle Knowledge garnered some interest I figured it would be helpful to provide some more resources on the subject for anyone who is interested in exploring, as William Lane Craig puts it, such a fruitful doctrine further:
- Refutation of Boyd’s Neo-Molinism, William Lane Craig
- Romans 9" href="http://www.reasonablefaith.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=6675">Molinism and Romans 9, William Lane Craig
- On the grounding objection, William Lane Craig
- Subject: Misconceptions about Middle Knowledge, William Lane Craig
- Does God Choose Who Will Believe?, Jeff Robinson
Philosophia Christi is a scholarly periodical published by the Evangelical Philosophical Society which regularly has articles both for and against Middle Knowledge, recently Vol 11 Num 1 2009 featured Steven B. Cowan (Editor of Five Views on Apologetics) against and Scott A Davison (Professor of Philosophy at Morehead State University) for with some good interaction between them both.
- Only Wise God, William Lane Craig
- Reasonable Faith, William Lane Craig
- Divine Foreknowledge: Four Views, William Lane Craig
- Divine Providence: The Molinist Account, Thomas P Flint
- Middle Knowledge, Eef Dekker
- Salvation and Sovereignty: A Molinist Approach, Kenneth Keathley
- God’s Greater Glory, Bruce Ware
- The Transforming Power of Grace, Thomas C Odem
Other notable proponents of Middle Knowledge1 include:
- Bruce Little who is a philosophy professor at SEBTS who has done a lot of work on the topic of God, Evil, and Suffering and whom is also the author of Creation Order Theodicy
- Udo Middleman who is a Calvinist and director of L’Abri which was started by his father-in-law, Francis Schaeffer. He is also the author of the excellent books Innocence of God and The Islamization of Christianity
- Alvin Plantinga who is a Calvinist and Presbyterian professor of philosophy (specifically epistemology) at Notre Dame
- Thomas P Flint who is a Roman Catholic professor of philosophy at Notre Dame
- Ken Keathley who is a senior associate dean and professor of theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C. and a 4 point Calvinist.
I would be remiss if I were to claim this as an exhaustive list of proponents or resources pertaining to Middle Knowledge/Molinism so if you know of any other resources, by all means, let me know!
- These include both active and passive proponents of Middle Knowledge/Molinism. Not all of these people actively promote Middle Knowledge by itself but all, as far as I know, hold to this doctrine and deem it useful or “fruitful” in answering other theological/philosophical issues. The most significant being the question of evil. [↩]
