THE INVISIBLE HAND: Do All Things Really Work for Good?^^A young shepherd boy wears a beautiful multicolored coat...and sets in motion the course of human history...^^On the rolling landscape of ancient Canaan, Joseph's brothers, jealous of their young brother's beautiful coat and his father's favoritism, initiated the chain of events that, generations later, would lead a young Egyptian woman to hear the cry of an infant floating on the Nile in a basket...And eventually from that encounter would come the Law...And from the keepers of the Law would come the prophecies that would point to a manger in Bethlehem...and ultimately to an empty tomb guarded by angels...^^In this thought-provoking book, acclaimed author R. C. Sproul shows how, since the beginning of time, the providence of God-the invisible hand that governs the universe with "perfect intentionality"-has worked for the good of those who love Him. With clarity and insight, he illuminates doctrinal principles by sharing his own family's touching experiences as well as biblical heroes' dramatic encounters with the providence of God. The result is an enlightening volume that inspires today's Christians to put their trust in the God who controls every person-every particle-in the universe.^
