An Imperfect God?

It’s not often you get such a directly theological piece in a secular setting. It does make an important point: how we define perfection shapes this debate. I’m not entirely comfortable with some of the classical expressions of God as a “perfect” being for reasons similar to those he describes. But I think it is possible (or at least conceivable) that God could be perfect in that balanced sense he describes – where God in his person maximally expresses all the perfections he has in coherent whole. If so, the objections against perfection seem far less compelling. In any event, stretch your mind.
