Have you ever been tempted to think that a loving, all-wise, and all-powerful God is not the one in control of your circumstances? Dr. Layton Talbert takes you on a journey through the Scriptures to trace the unmistakable outline of God’s shadow on human events. Survey God’s providence in the pages of the Bible, consider examples of His rule over history, and translate the practical reality of His providence into the here and now of your life.

Logos gives you the ability to study Christian principles and understand Christian living in the context of modern issues. All Scripture references are linked to your preferred Bible translation, which means you can have your Bible open alongside the books you’re reading. Plus, with the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference, making Bible study easier than ever before.
