To all the missionaries
who have given their lives,
or will yet give their lives,
to gather God's elect from all the peoples of the world,
in the confidence that the saving purposes
of Providence
in Christ Jesus
cannot fail.
First words
[Introduction] Four Invitations: God has revealed the goal and nature and extent of his providence.
The reason this book is about the providence of God rather than the sovereignty of God is that the term sovereigntydoes not contain the idea of purposeful action but the term providence does.
[Conclusion] The providence of God--his purposeful sovereignty--is all-embracing, all-pervasive, and invincible.
Providence is "God's purposeful sovereignty."
