Providence & Sovereignty
There is no way that one can say enough about this doctrine. There is enough here for the serous student to ponder for a lifetime. And if you are not blown away by the glory of God as you study this doctrine - you just aren't doing it right.

Finally, a typical reaction of anyone who begins to study this doctrine is to interpret the doctrine to, in one way or another, overthrow every other doctrine. This initial reaction may be unavoidable, but if you see it coming it may help to comfort you while the rest of the doctrines slowly and thoughtfully fall back into place.
