Chapter Summary

Reformed theology is Perfect Will theology. Moreover, its model of divine agency seems to be the only consistent one. Now, it is time to consider the modal power of Perfect Will more closely. How does the classic Reformed doctrine of God figure within possible worlds? The aim of this chapter is rather modest: it does not offer a strict proof of Perfect Will theology, but tries to explore how this way of thought is further strengthened by possible world semantics. So, I refrain from extensive discussion with relevant secondary literature in order to develop the train of thought more directly. Possible worlds semantics is useful to explore the existence and agency of a Best Possible Person.
