I recently spent an afternoon with Tyler McNabb in Glasgow. Later that day Tyler sent me an email of encouragement. Part of it was below. Apparently, someone asked, “Just out of curiosity, how many here were introduced to Molinism by WLC?” Below are a few responses.
Dwight Stanislaw WLC and Max Andrews. Max led me to Keathley’s book, which was the first treatment on Molinism I’ve read. Now I’m reading Freddoso’s intro to Molina’s own work and it’s destroying every last brain cell I have left.
Chad Miller Dwight literally took the exact route I did. I was intrigued by WLC but still Calvinist. I got to know Max via social media and communicated a lot with him. I asked him THE book on Molinism that gave the best argument and he recommend S&S by Ken Keathley, and now I’m here in this group and shall remain as long as Facebook is around…
Jonathan Thompson WLC, Plantinga, and Max Andrews. I first came in contact with this view upon hearing WLC’s lecture “Is One True Religion Possible?”.
I’m certainly happy to see that people are interested in Molinism and finding it to be a very compelling theological and philosophical understanding of God–it’s really a theological hermeneutic that belongs in the category of philosophical theology (and here). It’s an understanding of God derived from theological principles derived from the Scripture and is a theological construct, which isn’t inconsistent with any other theological positions based on theological reflection.
What I would do to anyone interested in the issues concerning Molinism I would simply refer them to a directory of mine that has a collection of relevant posts, papers, etc. ranging from simple issues to very complex issues. I have no idea how many Molinists there are and it’s still a minority view. If you read my review of Keathley’s book it’s my prediction that should people research the issues I’d hope that one may exchange their TULIP for ROSES. There are many more Calvinists and Arminians but I do believe Molinism is growing. (Amyraldism and open-theism, I suspect, may have fewer adherers than Molinism. Although, there are probably more people who call themselves Calvinists that are actually Amyraldians–the four pointers not adhering to limited atonement.)
 Tyler is doing his PhD at the University of Glasgow in Religious Epistemology. He and his wife have been great friends to me.
