Polkinghorne has gone as far as to call Farrers account theological
doublespeak (Polkinghorne, J, Science
and Christian Belief: Reflections of a bottom-up thinker (London: SPCK,
1994) p82). Philip Clayton suggests that if this model of divine agency claims
any more than the mere sustaining of
natural causes then it envisions a type of continuous divine
intervention in the world that is no weaker than the classical accounts of
miracles (Clayton, P, God and
Contemporary Science [Edinburgh: Edinburgh Academic Press, 1997] p177).
