The traditional doctrine of providence has fallen on hard times in the face of human suffering, such as that of September 11, 2001. In this clear and engaging book, Charles Wood seeks to renew reflection on doctrine of providence by reexamining features of the classical doctrine and reorienting the doctrine in a way that coheres more fully with the gospel. Woods argument moves in two directions: first, by examining recent thinking about the function of doctrine, Wood sheds light on what the doctrine of providence is supposed to do and how one might assess its adequacy. Second, Wood proposes a reorientation of the doctrine around the central Trinitarian and christological commitmentsa reorientation that moves beyond neglecting the doctrine of providence and toward a new way of understanding Gods involvement with the world.
-Publisher


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.
