Item description for The Providence of God: Christian Integrity in a Multicultural World (Contours of Christian Theology) by Paul Helm...
Overview Providence is the point at which theologians and the broader Christian community find their most intense conversations. Questions about God's activity in the world today, his guidance of believers, human freedom versus divine will, the place of prayer in the workings of his will, his responsibility for evil-all of these are related to his providence. How we think about these issues is deeply related to our understanding of God and of hwo we should serve and worship him.
Publishers Description In this concise and accessible introduction, Paul Helm outlines for students and interested readers the doctrine of divine providence. Unlike many doctrinal treatments, his approach is not historically oriented. Instead Helm focuses on the underlying metaphysical and moral aspects of God's providence, paying particular attention to the ideas of divine control, providence and evil, and the role of prayer in relationship to providence.
