Here is the structure:
The Author says __________.
I will argue that __________, because __________.
One might object that __________.
I would reply that __________.
The Author says that God couldn’t allow suffering. I will argue that God could allow suffering, because he would want to test our devotion. One might object that God wouldn’t need to test our devotion since he’s all-knowing and would already know how devoted we are. I would reply that even an all-knowing God cannot know what we will freely choose to do.
You should refer to the author of the different textbook chapters as “The Author”. Although I (Korman) wrote the textbook, the views expressed in the specific chapters are not always my own.
