The Sovereignty of God is an expression that once was generally understood. It was a phrase commonly used in religious literature. It was a theme frequently expounded in the pulpit. It was a truth which brought comfort to many hearts, and gave virility and stability to Christian character. Were we to announce from the average pulpit that the subject of our discourse would be the Sovereignty of God, it would sound very much as though we had borrowed a phrase from one of the dead languages.

Shelves: doctrine This book caused quite a controversy when it was first published and I suppose it still does. This book is a treasure to me as it opened a new view of God and His Word.

His explanation that we pray because we rely on God, not because we want God to change things, was an eye opener. Well know it has. I approach prayer in a whole different A lot of doctrine to swallow, some easier than others. I approach prayer in a whole different manner. It makes answers the question, " if God knows everything then why do we need to pray? We need the wisdom to discern His plan in our life.
In regards to some of the tougher stuff to swallow, I am still working through it- even after reading his book. Part of the problem for me is he had to do to much qualifiying of words, phrases and beliefs before proving his point or just letting the biblical text speak for itself.
So some of his points went to a far off the track for me and I got lost in definitions and explanations of his explanations. I will continue to seek reconciliation so that it is not just an intellectual knowledge, but one I can believe with my whole heart.
