Review of CHANCE AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD by Vern Polythress

Chance and the Sovereignty of God by Vern Polythress is a weighty book that deals with a highly complex subject. The book tackles the question from a theological point of view of whether or not there are chance events that occur in the world.

Polythress looks at a variety of seemingly random chance occurrences in the world. He then explores how chance occurrences work in a world in which God is sovereign. Using the Bible, probability, and mathematics, Polythress makes a compelling case for God's ultimate sovereignty over any event that we might consider random.

This is an important book because we need to know that we live in a world in which God is always aware and in control, ultimately bringing about what he wants for the good of his creation. It's not an easy book, but it's definitely a book to wrestle through.
