Not by Chance

In Not by Chance, Layton Talbert develops the doctrine of providence and applies it to Christian living. Does a loving God really control every circumstance of life? How about sudden death or other seemingly senseless tragedies? How does providence affect human responsibility in salvation or prayer? Rich in practical relevance as well as scholarship, Not by Chance teaches believers to trust in a sovereign God.

"A lasting contribution . . . read this outstanding work prayerfully."—Mark Minnick, from the Foreword

"The most thorough and balanced treatment I’ve seen."—Paul W. Downey
