I'm currently studying the open theism issue. The quickest way to get up to speed is from reading and/or listening to debates (preferrably from degreed theologians). I am only aware of a couple of these. One is a book published by Baker Academic called, <a href="http://www.spiritrestoration.org/bookreviews/Does_God_have_a_future.htm" target="_blank">Does God Have a Future?: On Divine Providence</a> which was a collection of email exchanges between Christopher Hall and John Sanders. And the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society published a few exchanges between John Sanders, Gregory A. Boyd, Clark Pinnock and Bruce A. And currently in progress at www.TheologyOnLine.com is a debate between Dr. Samuel Lamerson of Knox Theological Seminary and a pastor from Denver. Those are the only debates I'm aware of (by degreed theologians) on the topic of open theism. If anyone knows of any others, please post them here. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a lot in advance.
