Information on The Glory of Christ from the publisher:
From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is centered on Jesus, yet it is often talked about as if its purpose is to be a guide for church growth, a happy marriage, or healthy self-esteem. Looking to God's Word for principles and insights regarding practical issues is appropriate, but even more, we must seek within its pages fresh revelations of God's unique Son, Jesus Christ. For if we gather only moralistic examples and lessons in civility from the Bible, how can we reveal to the world the wonder of our Savior? True revival will come only when we as God's children focus on the centrality of Jesus Christ. Four highly respected preachers and teachers -- J. I. Packer, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Jim Elliff, and John H. Armstrong -- explore several aspects of Christ's glory, as well as the power of our passion for it. Their exhortations will help you regain a sense of the Savior's majesty and come to trust God like never before.
Description of John H. Armstrong, author of The Glory of Christ:
The whole Bible is focused on Jesus, from Genesis to Revelation; yet it is sometimes preached as if its sole purpose is to be a handbook for daily living, a guide for a happy marriage or for successful child-rearing. While it is right to look to God's Word for principles and insights regarding these practical issues, we must also see within its pages the fresh revelation of the person of God's unique son, Jesus Christ.The Glory of Christ challenges and guides readers in doing just that. Chapters are drawn from sessions given at the "Solus Christus: Rediscovering the Wonder of Christ's Glory" conference, presented by Reformation and Revival Ministries. Contributors include John Armstrong, Jim Elliff, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., and J. I. Packer. The authors believe that true revival will come only when we as God's people return to the centrality of Jesus Christ. "Recovering the wonders of Christ alone is not merely an antiquated slogan of the 16th-century Reformation," declares this book. "It is the flame which will ignite a new reformation today."
