This book was first published in 1942 in the dark days of the Second World War. At that time the author’s oral ministry was much appreciated as he sought to expound from the Holy Scriptures God’s dealings with the nations of the world and to strengthen the faith of believers, many of whom were greatly perplexed by the onset of a second world-wide conflict following so soon after the appalling horrors of the 1914-18 war. Many who heard this oral ministry considered it so important that they urged the author to commit his exposition to writing. As we see this age drawing to a climax, this ministry is no less vital in our day than it was in 1942.

In his foreword to this latest edition J. B. Nicholson describes this work as, ‘Unique’. We know of no other volume which, in such succinct form, brings before us the practical ways in which God manifests His sovereignty among the nations of the world’. The reader is able to follow the author as he moves steadily through the scriptures and expounds the harmony of the divine purposes in creation, providence, and redemption.  With clarity, and in simple language, he brings before us the consistency of divine activity both in judgement and in mercy. God’s purposes for the church, for Israel, and for the nations all come under review and the reader is enabled to see the victory of Calvary fully worked out in the consummation of the ages. What unspeakable comfort and encouragement to be reminded of the authority of Holy Scripture that, in H. P. Barker’s words, ‘Beyond the strife and turmoil, the struggling and conflict of the world, God is still working out His own purposes’.     

This is a book which, when read alongside an open Bible, will refresh, enlighten, and encourage.
