In November of 2018, Dr. Craig participated in a panel discussion on Divine Simplicity. This session was part of various EPS sessions at the 2018 AAR/SBL meeting in Denver, Colorado.
The presenters and their papers:
Richard G. Howe, Southern Evangelical Seminary: Antecedents to Aquinas' Doctrine of Simplicity
Stephen T. Davis, Claremont McKenna College: Why Simplicity is Unnecessary
William Lane Craig, Biola University, Houston Baptist University: Objections to Divine Simplicity
J. Brian Huffling, Southern Evangelical Seminary: Responding to Objections to Divine Simplicity.
The doctrine of divine simplicity has enjoyed much interest as of late, both from supporters and detractors. This panel discussion offers an opportunity for scholars on both sides of the issue to present their cases. This is a topic that should be of interest to philosophers, theologians, and religious scholars.
