Watson’s book All Things for Good (Amazon kindle $0.99) has been a source of devotional delight for me personally over the past several weeks as he spends the entire book unpacking Romans 8:28, “… And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” 514 more words
