Reply to Clack

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Beverley Clack states that I picture God as "a loving parent who gets mad, yells, curses, goes mad with grief, is brave, loving etc". She fears this implicates me in "the very model of God as Creator that gets the academic problem of evil running," and challenges me to explain what it means "to use the word 'God' in the first place". Here I sketch an answer.
