The providence of God is a doctrine Christians struggle to understand. Scripture affirms that God is sovereign, that he governs all the affairs of creation. Yet we, his creatures, make choices every day, and God holds us morally responsible for those choices. How can human freedom fit into the "purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will"? Bruce Ware explores this question in this book.
Though in all things God's Word is the final authority, our Christian tradition, as inherited from centuries of careful reflection and endeavoring to be true to the teaching of Scripture, can greatly enlighten us. Nowhere is this blend of respectful listening to the wisdom of the past and faithfulness to the Bible more necessary than in our contemporary reformulations of the doctrine of God's person.
Bruce Ware believes that while tradition's emphasis on God's metaphysical perfection and His supremacy over the world is correct, we must refine our understanding of the way in which He relates to us. While retaining the deepest concerns of the historic tradition, Ware offers a more rational view of God's dealings with His children-a view that is reflected in Scripture's own testimony of Him. Ware then applies this concept of real divine exaltation and real divine-human relationship to the areas of our prayer life, confidence in God and His guidance of us.
