This is an excellent book that came to me at a much needed time in my life. Although no believer can fully understand how God's invisible hand moves in mankind's motions, John Flavel effectively expounds on the important doctrine of God's Providence. In typical thorough Puritan fashion, Flavel takes one verse - Psalm 57:2 "God that performeth all things for me" and, like turning a diamond, examines every facet of this verse using the whole of scripture and history. Flavel writes in a plain spoken style with pastoral warmth, discussing the evidence of Providence, and how to meditate on it and apply it. This book helped give me a Biblical framework and perspective on the events of my life, providing comfort in knowing all things are working toward a purposeful end even when I don't understand. In an age of theology that tends to elevate man, this book will remind readers that God is in control, is above all things, and is intimately involved in the details of the Christian's life through His loving, all-wise and powerful hand!!- Jeff
