Rowe on God’s Freedom and God’s Grace

Philo 8 (1):12-22 (2005)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Rowe argues that if for every good world there is a better, then God is not morally perfect since no matter what world God were to create he could have done better than he did. I contend that Rowe’s argument doesn’t do justice to the role grace plays in the theist’s doctrine of creation, and respond to five new criticisms of my position that Rowe offers in Can God be Free?
