Read full description of the books:
Very interesting and thought-provoking book on the will of God. The author divides the will of God into three categories: intentional (only wishing good, like the love of a parent for a child), circumstantial (taking into account that something bad has happened because of sin or people's actions and what God wants you to do about it), and ultimate will (that is God using the bad events that were not in his intentional will for his ultimate purpose). So if a small child dies or some terrible injustice occurs, he explains that is not necessarily a part of God's intentional will but due to some other circumstance like evil, sin, war, but it is a part of his circumstantial will in that He allowed it to happen under the circumstances. It explains so much and gives great examples and really brings back the concept of personal responsibility, which sometimes seems to go missing in religion and Christianity. It is not God's will for children to go hungry or die in wars or many of the other horrors that people blame on God. I really loved this book, this could definitely be a life-changing book.
"when the storm is raging it is too late to talk about the anchor that should have been put down before the storm began." page 10.
"He who hides in an idea about God which is not true will, in the hour of real need, be left as comfortless as atheism would leave him." page 22.
"by doing the circumstantial will of God we open up the way to God's ultimate triumph with no loss of anything of value to ourselves." page 32
"if we do faithfully that which we see to be the will of God in the circumstances which evil thrusts upon us, we can rest our minds in the assurance that circumstances which God allows, reacted to in faith and trust and courage, can never defeat purposes which God ultimately wills." page 46
"It is one thing to say, "This evil has been done. How can I win good from it? it is another thing to say, "I will deliberately do evil in order to win good from it." page 53
