God's Glory Alone - The Majestic Heart of Christian Faith and Life: What The Reformers Taught… And Why It Still Matters
1 in stock
At the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations, often referred to as the 'solas': sola scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. In this book, David VanDrunen looks at the historical and biblical roots of the last of these - the idea that all glory belongs to God alone.
He examines the development of this theme in the Reformation, in subsequent Reformed theology and confessions, and in contemporary theologians who continue to be inspired by the conviction that all glory belongs to God. He then turns to the biblical story of God's glory, beginning with the pillar of cloud and fire revealed to Israel, continuing through the incarnation, death and exaltation of the Lord Jesus Christ, and culminating in Christ's Second Coming and the glorification of his people.
In light of these wonderful biblical themes, he concludes by addressing several of today's great cultural challenges and temptations - such as distraction and narcissism - and reflects on how commitment to God's glory alone fortifies us to live godly lives in this present evil age.
