A Christian View of History DVD

Author: James Boice

The Bible Study Hour

God has a plan for human history. He is in control of all things. While we are often tempted to think God isn’t paying attention or that He has failed in some way, Scripture teaches us the opposite. God’s plan was and is to save His children from all parts of the globe, from different times and different cultures. We are reminded that all whom the Father calls will be saved. No one can resist God’s saving love. God’s election of His people throughout history can be a difficult teaching. But James Boice shows how this truth demonstrates God’s love for us.
