There would be little discussion, let alone controversy, among Christians about God’s sovereignty and human responsibility, if both of these concepts were not to be found in the Bible. Indeed, it sounds. The concept of sovereignty, once relatively uncontested, has recently become a major bone of contention within international law and international relations theory.
