It's about time... Jul 4, 2005
Providence is about God's time and grace and our role in it. The book provides a fast-paced and yet deep overview of the terrain of where American (protestant) religion, culture, and politics are today, how we got here, and a possible pathway through the thickets. It is conservative (in the good sense), but Webb deals fairly with the liberal viewpoint, summarizing and presenting its POV clearly and fairly. His assertions, premises, and conclusions are clear and transparent, making this a wonderful overview and an engaging, though thick, read. He is a good conversation partner; you may disagree, but you will know why, and you will understand why many will agree with what he has to say.
