God’s Glory Alone: The Majestic Heart of Christian Faith And Life

Posted On January 22, 2016

To the Christian, seeking God’s glory is not optional but mandatory. Few groups of Christians articulated a vision of God’s glory alone better than the Reformers and following them the Puritans. Today we live in a world where people are seeking their own glory through a variety of mediums such as sports and entertainment to name just a few. Christians today need to have a biblical understanding of God’s glory so they will know and serve Him in all of life. This is why I’m thankful for the new book God’s Glory Alone: The Majestic Heart Of Christian Faith and Life: What The Reformers Taught… and Why It Still Matters.

This book is a serious biblical, historical, and practical book on the glory of God. This book explores how the doctrines of God’s glory developed in Reformed theology and confessions. The author then turns to the biblical story, beginning with the pillar of cloud and fire revealed to Israel, and culminating in Christ’s Second Coming. The author then concludes looking at today’s cultural challenges such as distraction and narcissism—reflecting on how commitment to God’s glory alone fortifies us to live godly lives in this present evil age. The book has three sections. Section one explores the relationship of the glory of God to the other solas and the glory of God in Reformed theology. The book continues in part two exploring the biblical foundations of the glory of God in the exodus story, the incarnation of Jesus, and the glorification of the people of God. The final section of the book looks at prayer, worship, the fear of the Lord, and glorifying God in all of life.

God’s Glory Alone is a very helpful book. I especially appreciated the last section looking at how we live in a world that seeks its own glory. Whether you are a new or seasoned Christian this book has something for you. I highly recommend this book and believe every Christian would do well to read this book slowly and careful with a view to examining themselves in light of Christ.

I received this book for free from Zondervan Academic for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
