Touching areas of both apologetics and systematic theology, this is a discussion of the ways in which God related to His world: through prayer, miracles, providence and sovereignty. In the light of both contemporary problems facing the church and lessons from the past, Dr MacDonald addresses questions such as:
- Can God truly answer prayer if the ‘answer’ is already in existence?
- Do miracles really happen?
- Why is there evil if the Creator of the universe is good?
- Do some things really happen only ‘by chance’?
The author exhorts the church to return to a biblical understanding of God as a truly personal being and to resist the Eastern view of an impersonal, uncaring deity which is sweeping the West today.
