Chasing the Wind: Of Pain and Sovereignty
In my last entry of the series , I didn't dwell on the text of Ecclesiastes in order to present some arguments that I'd need to return to later. In retrospect, my discussion on God's sovereignty would have been all the better for consideration of the follow...
