On Polkinghorne's Unification of General Providence, Special Providence and Miracle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

John Polkinghorne claims there are no real distinctions between general providence, special providence and miracle. In this paper I determine whether this claim could be true given Polkinghorne's wider account of these types of divine action. I conclude that this claim could be true, but only given a particular reading of Polkinghorne. I then defend this reading in light of two potential objections.
