I’ve begun to read through David Baggett and Jerry Wall’s new book Good God: The Theistic Foundations of Morality and I’m convinced that this will be a prominent resource for future works on basing morality in theism. I’ll be going through and making a few posts here and there on certain aspects of the book. It not only goes up against competing atheistic alternatives but it also takes Calvinism to task. Baggett and Walls are ardent Arminians and their method of theological inquiry and their arguments can’t be ignored nor can they be easily dismissed by the Calvinist. I wrote a paper concerning the arbitrariness horn of the Euthyphro dilemma (an appendix to the book) and now I’m going back through as much as I can. Hopefully I’ll be able to provide some review and insight for those who don’t have the book (and incentive to add it to your library!).
