Overview

Why then do bad things happen? Where does that leave 'free will'? Does God choose us or do we choose God? What's the point of praying if God already knows what he's going to do? Orlando Saer tackles these questions - and more - in a straightforward and engaging way. If you sometimes struggle to understand the way God works in the world, or to explain it to others, you will find light here. You'll also be left with a new appreciation of just how big the God of the Bible really is.

Mark Dever - Senior Pastor

If God has seemed absent, He might start appearing for you in surprising places if you take on board Saer's words here. Accurate, biblical, clear, short, serious and practical... thinking meets life.

R. Kent Hughes ~ Senior Pastor Emeritus

Cosmic practicality... he peels off the cultural shrink-wrap from this massive doctrine and thus gives wings to Christian living - and mission. Here is medicine for the soul!
