In Biblical Doctrine by Jessica PickowiczLeave a Comment

Blogging Through Biblical Doctrine
Have you wanted to read a theology book, but haven’t known where to begin? In this series, Jess is blogging through John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue’s book, Biblical Doctrine. Print the study guides at the bottom of each post (or on the Resources page) and follow along!  Also, be sure to join the associated women’s Facebook page to discuss the study with other Christian women.  Finally, if you want to go back and start at the beginning you may find the Introduction article here.

This week, as we begin to wrap up this chapter on God the Father, we discuss four topics:

  • The Decree of God
  • Creation
  • Divine Miracles
  • Divine Providence

There are loads of resources on the topic of creation at Grace to You. Gabriel Powell has composed a helpful little article, Understanding Biblical Creation, that links many of the resources on the topic from the Grace to You ministry.

This sermon from John MacArthur is also helpful, Does God Do Miracles Today.

Here is your study guide for this week Theology Proper 9.

I’ll see you next week, as we finish up this chapter, for our discussion on Theodicy and glorifying God.
