About Providence, Divine Action and the Church


In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.

  6. The Academic Career Handbook has been claimed, but the person who's claimed it still hasn't given me contact details for postage. Leave it a couple of weeks and contact me again. If the book still hasn't been posted, you can have it if you want it.
