Title

Abstract

In this paper I question the claim that the increasingly popular position known as 'free-will theism' or 'the open view of God' supports a rich religious life. To do this I advance a notion of 'religious adequacy,' and then argue that free-will theism fails to be religiously adequate with respect to one of the principal practies of the religious life-petitionary prayer.
