What They’re Saying About Banner Books (2013 No. 2)

Category Book Reviews
Date June 4, 2013

‘The providence of God! What a glorious and precious doctrine this is when the good Lord opens our eyes to it! And how better to open our eyes to it than to lead us through the Scriptures and show us this merry little stream of biblical truth sometimes hidden beneath the surface but undergirding the narrative, while at other times springing up to the surface to be clearly seen in the unfolding of events? That is what our author does . . .’
[Bob Thomas is enthusiastic about Alexander Carson’s The History of Providence – and David Searle’s Joseph: His Arms Were Made Strong].
