Example text

I n short , s o fa r fro m intervention necessarily involving the miraculous, it seems indispensabl e if we are to allo w God the sam e power and dignity o f action a s we are prepared to ascribe to ourselves. Secondly, i n insisting that no t all divine action i s of the same kind we are doin g somethin g als o t o preserv e ou r ow n persona l freedo m an d dignity, a s it has been given to u s by God. For were we to sa y that i t is all of the same sustaining kin d subsumable unde r natura l laws , at once both the divine distance and the divine closeness would be swallowed up in one, except perhap s subjectively, whereas both ar e in fact integra l if human action and its relation to the divine are properly to b e described as personal.

It has two principa l defects. First, it suggests that Go d is uninvolved with the world except where h e i s specificall y intervening . Secondly , interventio n ca n ver y easily sugges t manipulatio n or authoritarian interference. M y stress ... on a free huma n respons e demonstrates clearl y that th e latte r ide a of manipulation i s very far from my mind. 'Interactionist ' migh t b e a better description. But there is some truth in the first charge. For, while I wish to insist o n God' s creativ e rol e as sustaine r an d ordere r o f th e universe , I do find it hard to locate sufficient involvement in the non-interventionis t cases, suc h tha t th e accusatio n ca n the n b e resiste d tha t th e ter m 'action' i s here not merel y being used in an attenuated sense .

44-5 Augustine repeat s th e theme , alread y familiar t o us , that eve n thoug h Christ's miracle s ough t t o produc e fait h i n th e incarnat e Lord , the y as often as not fail to d o so. Indeed , peopl e can believe i n Christ with out seein g an y miracle s a t all . Th e Samaritans , fo r Augustine , ar e the paradigm example . I n Galile e onl y Christ' s fe w disciple s believ e i n him becaus e of th e miracl e at Can a (John 2:11), and the rule r i n Cana believed only after he had confirmed the miracle by confirming the hour of his son's healing with the hour of Christ's promise to him.
