God and Goodness
This chapter defends the view that God is the good. It mainly accomplishes this task through a semantic analysis of what is denoted, connoted, and implicated by standard language usage of the good, and argues that God best occupies the role of the ultimate Good—and lesser good in virtue of relevant resemblance to God. The focus at this juncture of the analysis is on God's nature rather than his commands; the chapter does not endorse the view that the good is whatever God commands.
