Each person in their lives, will at one stage cry to heaven and ask why did the tragedy have to happen? It is normal to wonder where God is in such circumstances. It is where the rubber of human anguish meets the road of divine providence. R C Sproul has written this book in an effort to face those issues and questions which arise with regard to divine providence. It is designed to look at the question of providence, not only from a doctrinal viewpoint, but chiefly from an examination of concrete experiences of flesh and blood people whose lives and struggles are recorded from us in sacred Scripture.
