Overview

Few things distinguish Christian and secular worldviews with greater clarity than the doctrine of providence: that everything that happens is the outcome of the sovereign overruling of God. So what is Providence? In this booklet, Derek Thomas examines the providence of God by observing how the Bible explains the complex lives of men and women as well as weighing opposing viewpoints, including Open Theism and Molinistic views of “middle knowledge.”
