By Steven J. Duby
Duby outlines the overall background of the Christian doctrine of divine simplicity and discusses the methodological features and crucial contents of the dogmatic account. He substantiates the claims of the doctrine of divine simplicity by way of demonstrating that they're implied and required through the scriptural account of God. Duby considers how simplicity is inferred from God's singularity and aseity, in addition to the way it is inferred from God's immutability and infinity, and the Christian doctrine of production.
The dialogue ends with the reaction to significant objections to simplicity, specifically that the doctrine doesn't pay heed to the plurality of the divine attributes, that it eradicates God's freedom in growing the area and appearing towards us; and that it doesn't cohere with the non-public differences to be made within the doctrine of the Trinity.
