God's Work of Providence 2014

The last two years I’ve enjoyed listening to the entire audios from the Spring Conference of  Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary on topics that non-Presbyterians would also benefit from.  In 2012 the conference was on Old Princeton from Greenville Seminary 2012 Conference and in 2013 it was on a Biblical doctrine of Man.

This year’s theme is on God’s Works of Providence in which they will be examining what providence is and such topics as its relation to evil, sin, suffering, and prayer.

Here’s the schedule:
