I feel a bit nervous about tackling this. I am reading around the net to begin with and feelings are running high in response to open theism, which is, I think, what this question is asking me to tackle fundamentally. Conservative and reformed theologians have not worried about charging open theists with heresy. I think that I am going to have to be careful not to get caught up in the polarising that occurs. I hope to discover the subtleties, the shades of grey. When I wrote on Penal Substitutionary Atonement last year, I think I failed to grasp the subtelties because I had rather overdosed on the reformed position.
Oh dear, controversies abound, as usual. I need to balance my reading.
So far I am looking at
