Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

How can God be absolutely sovereign (as the Bible and the Reformed tradition emphasize) and yet human beings are genuinely free and accountable for our actions and beliefs (as the Bible and the Wesley / Holiness tradition emphasize)? Packer’s treatment of this question in the context of evangelistic ministry is masterful. He uses the concept of apparent antinomy (apparent contradiction) to indicate that human freedom and divine predestination are not really adverse to each other, they hold together in the Character of God, not in human reason.
