Dembski on possible worlds and possibility matrices

In chapters 4-5 of Being as Communion¬† William Dembski leads us towards the introduction of information theory by laying some semi-technical groundwork. “Possible worlds” logic will be familiar (and maybe intimidating) to anyone who has seen its use as a tool of analytic philosophy.
