The traditional doctrine of providence has fallen on hard times. Although still invoked on special occasions, the doctrine of God's providence has long since ceased to operate as a guiding principal for many--if not most--Christians. In this clear and engaging book, Charles Wood seeks to renew reflection on the doctrine of providence by reexamining features of the classical doctrine and reorienting the doctrine in a way that coheres with the gospel and offers a fresh vision of God's work in the world.
