Product description


'Is anybody in charge around here?' 'Does anybody care about me?' The answer to both these questions is 'God', and that is the Christian doctrine of providence. In this easy-to-read book, Melvin Tinker brings home to us what that means in practice as we see God working our his purposes in our lives. There are no simple answers, but Mr Tinker can make hard things clear and help us to understand who is watching over us and why. Highly recommended.' --Gerald Bray, Research Professor, Beeson Divinity School

God's sovereign rule is complicated but crucial. Melvin Tinker steers us through with clarity and thoughtfulness, always keeping himself to what the Bible actually says rather than what we might want it to say. That faithfulness to Scripture, combined with pastoral sensitivity and application to life, makes this a most welcome and useful book --Graham Beynon, Grace Church, Cambridge, director of Training for East Anglia Ministry
