For every believer who has ever wondered "Why, Lord?", experienced pastor and author R.C. Sproul writes in detail about the providence of God. Sproul's own anguish over his stillborn granddaughter led him to look for the place "where the rubber of human anguish meets the road of divine providence." Do all things really work for good? Explore this question with a renowned Bible scholar, in terms everyone can understand.
Covers all aspects of divine providence. Written for all who face the hard questions of providence in the concrete arena of faith, "this book is an effort to face those issues and questions that arise with regard to Gods providence," Sproul writes. "It is designed to look at the question of providence, not only from a doctrinal viewpoint, but chiefly from an examination of concrete experiences of flesh-and-blood people whose lives and struggles are recorded for us in sacred Scripture.

Not since I read one of Sprouls earlier books, The Holiness of God, has a book simultaneously shaken my soul and comforted it with the presence of God. . . . This is theology at its finest. It is truth for living.
Sproul does his usual workmanlike job of clarifying difficult topics and rendering them comprehensible to the lay reader. . . . The Invisible Hand throws welcome light on a neglected facet of Gods action and human experience.
