1) The Sovereignty of God: In Creation and Redemption
This work of Arthur Pink addresses has been republished by Bierton Particular Baptists Pakistan and deals with the real issues facing those who profess Christianity.
The bible is very clear as to the Sovereignty of God in every aspect of our lives, in creation and redemption but so very few people are able to grasp the reality and profound implications of this fact. This book demonstrates that scripture clearly teaches that our redemption is in the hands of God, that God has predestined all things. That He has and chosen to save a vast number of people styled the Church and that this redemption was planned and designed for those chosen in Christ before the world began. It clearly shows that God is in control of all things and that nothing come to pass unless God has commanded it.
2) Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God
If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all? J. I. Packer shows in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics how both of these attitudes are false.
In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God’s sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it. With over 100,000 copies in print, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.
3) Suffering and the Sovereignty of God
In the last few years, 9/11, a tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and many other tragedies have shown us that the vision of God in today’s churches in relation to evil and suffering is often frivolous. Against the overwhelming weight and seriousness of the Bible, many Christians are choosing to become more shallow, more entertainment-oriented, and therefore irrelevant in the face of massive suffering.
In Suffering and the Sovereignty of God, contributors John Piper, Joni Eareckson Tada, Steve Saint, Carl Ellis, David Powlison, Dustin Shramek, and Mark Talbot explore the many categories of God’s sovereignty as evidenced in his Word. They urge readers to look to Christ, even in suffering, to find the greatest confidence, deepest comfort, and sweetest fellowship they have ever known.
4) God’s Sovereignty in the Salvation of Men
A concise treatment of the Sovereignty of God as pertains to the salvation of men. This excellent work is from the pen of one of the world’s leading theologians, Jonathan Edwards.
Edwards deals with the definition, scope and working of God’s sovereign decision-making in his plan to save a people for Himself. After reading this historical work you will have no doubt that salvation is entirely a work of the good-pleasure of God and that we as men cannot contribute to our justification.
5) The Sovereignty of God and Prayer
The author tells us what prayer is not: Prayer never makes God my servant to give me everything I think I must have in order to make me happy. God is not a ‘heavenly bellhop’ who carries my suitcase of selfish desires any place I command.
Prayer never allows me to either dictate my will to God nor to make God in any way change his mind. God has a fixed plan and his plan is the best plan. God is determined to carry out his plan, and neither our sin nor or ‘believing’ prayers are going to derail or in any way change God’s ultimate decrees (Job 13:13) The author also tells us what true prayer is: True prayer is a frank admission that God is sovereign.
6) hand in Hand: The Beauty of God’s Sovereignty and Meaningful Human Choice
Is it possible to reconcile God’s sovereignty with human choice? This is one of the most perplexing theological questions. It’s also one of the most personal.
In hand in Hand, Randy Alcorn says that the traditional approach to this debate has often diminished our trust in God and his purposes. Instead of making a one-sided argument from select verses, Alcorn examines the question in light of all Scripture. By exploring what the whole Bible says about divine sovereignty and human choice, hand in Hand helps us…
7) What about Free Will?: Reconciling Our Choices with God’s Sovereignty
Christensen explains two views that acknowledge God’s sovereignty and its relation to human responsibility: compatibilism and libertarianism.
Providing cogent, biblical answers, Christensen argues for compatibilism and shows how it makes sense of evil, suffering, prayer, evangelism, and sanctification. You will gain a deeper understanding of both arguments, as well as a greater appreciation for the significant role that choices play in God’s work.
8) The Suffering of Man and the Sovereignty of God
This book contains Charles Spurgeon’s best twenty-five sermons from the book of Job, explaining how God’s sovereignty and man’s suffering intersect. Perfect binding.
9) Chance and the Sovereignty of God: A God-Centered Approach to Probability and Random Events
What if all events—big and small, good and bad—are governed by more than just blind chance? What if they are governed by God?
In this theologically informed and philosophically nuanced introduction to the study of probability and chance, Vern Poythress argues that all events—including the seemingly random or accidental—fall under God’s watchful gaze as part of his eternal plan. Comprehensive in its scope, this book lays the theistic foundation for our scientific assumptions about the world while addressing personal questions about the meaning and significance of everyday events.
10) Does God Control Everything? (Crucial Questions (Reformation Trust))
Most people today believe that we live in a closed, mechanistic universe, that is, a universe that functions from day to day according to certain physical forces and causes.
Classical Christianity has taken a very different view, teaching that God is the primary cause of the universe, but also that He is the primary cause of everything in the universe and of everything that happens in the universe—in short, that God, not mechanistic forces, is the primary cause of what is and what happens.
