A Peculiar Glory
What do the Scriptures claim for themselves?
How can we know the Scriptures are true?
How are the Scriptures confirmed by the peculiar glory of God?
John Piper examines the Bible’s self-authenticating nature and unique ability to showcase God’s unmatched glory, laying a solid foundation for the belief that God’s Word is absolutely perfect and totally reliable.
Says the author, ‘I do not merely hold a view of Scripture. I am held. The glory of God shining through his Word has been an irresistible treasure.’
The Bible is not a masterpiece hanging on the wall of an Alpine chalet. Rather, it is a window on the wall through which we see and admire the stunning Alpine view.
Never has the church been in greater need of recognizing that Scripture is self-attesting. In this important and timely book, Piper shows what it means not only to conform our thinking but also to submit our worship and our lives as a whole to the self-establishing, self-validating truth and authority of the Bible and, in doing that, to the Christ of the Bible.
This book will revolutionise the way you think about God’s Word.
Here we find compelling arguments for the truthfulness of the Scriptures and profound meditations on the stunning glory of God.
Piper’s passion for God’s glory is refreshing and challenging. Readers with good theological competence and an ability to follow a complex argument will benefit most from A Peculiar Glory. The book provides an important corrective to excessively mechanical approaches to Scripture.
