From the Publisher
In this book, Thomas Boston explains how the sovereignty and wisdom of God is displayed in the afflictions of men. In his approach to this difficult subject, he is both theologically precise and pastorally tender. Boston does not commit the error of needlessly trying to protect Gods reputation, nor does he go to the opposite extreme of making God a compassionate but helpless bystander. Rather, Boston brings God right into the mix of even the most disastrous events, and shows how He is actively involved in both the events and their resolution. Let the wisdom of the ages be a salve during this time of crisis and bewilderment. May the God of all comfort be your comfort in troubled times.

Does God often touch us in the one place we have no strength to handle being touched? Is this His way with His people? Does the crook sift us? Does it prove us chaff or wheat? Will it damn or save us? Is the crook ballast to save us!? These are deep truths, and have been indispensable in my walk with the Lord. Where else will you get them in our day? This is a radical book.

I first read the now out of print by copy by Trumpet Publications. I bought this copy published by SDG off Amazon years ago at full price when it first came out. It is a beautifully done hardcover. I don't like the dust jacket so I tossed it (who needs to keep looking at this picture?). The book is dark blue with gold letters underneath.
