Opposing the common exclusion of God from an active role in human history, this work explains how His role exists and can be witnessed in humanity's complicated dualities--in time and space, war and peace, wealth and poverty, and love and hatred. Arguing that history is a master plan--that God, who is reason and love, wills human existence--Dr. Pursell weaves his thesis through both divine revelation and specific historical events. He explains in accessible terms that God's plan for human history is that of unity in opposing forces; that historical periods are secular constructs--despite human ingenuity and industrialization, all humankind is part of one historical period under God, defined not by machines but by morals. In a style that is both fluid and engrossing, Dr. Pursell offers Christians and historians alike a new vision of human history that is sure to inspire as much as it educates.
