Creation and the Sovereignty of God brings fresh insight to a defense of God. Traditional theistic belief declared a perfect being who creates and sustains everything and who exercises sovereignty over all. Lately, this idea has been contested, but Hugh J. McCann maintains that God creates the best possible universe and is completely free to do so; that God is responsible for human actions, yet humans also have free will; and ultimately, that divine command must be reconciled with natural law. With this distinctive approach to understanding God and the universe, McCann brings new perspective to the evidential argument from evil.

Hugh J. McCann is Professor of Philosophy at Texas A&M University. He is author of The Works of Agency: On Human Action, Will, and Freedom.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a book whose technical detail will give professionals quite a bit to chew on but whose clarity and coverage of a wide range of topics also make it suitable as an introduction to analytic philosophy of religion for advanced students." -American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly
