    Theistic Activism and the Doctrine of Creation.Paul M. Gould - 2014 - Philosophia Christi 16 (2):283-296.
    This paper provides a plausible answer to the question of how God created.

    Where the Bootstrapping Really Lies.Paul M. Gould & Richard Brian Davis - 2017 - International Philosophical Quarterly 57 (4):415-428.
    Modified Theistic Activism is the view that abstract objects not essentially possessed by God fall under God’s creative activity in one way or another. Michelle Panchuk has argued that this position succumbs to the bootstrapping problem such that God is and is not logically prior to his properties—an incoherent and necessarily false state of affairs. In this essay we respond to Panchuk by arguing that our neo-Aristotelian account of substance and property possession successfully avoids the bootstrapping problem. Moreover, her own (...)
