God’s glory is one of the most important concepts in the Bible, yet it remains abstract and ambiguous to most Christians. Can we ever understand such glory?
In The Glory of God: A Biblical Theology, Philippe Viguier examines the eight types of glory described in the Old and New Testaments and presents his findings in an approachable manner that is relevant to daily Christian life. A biblical theology that is both practical and purposeful, The Glory of God offers systematic analysis with exegesis delving into the original Greek and Hebrew. Once God’s glory is biblically expounded and revealed, Viguier says, the Christian can’t mistake the divine call for unity and reflection or the incomparable goodness, beauty, and praise-worthiness of God as king, savior, judge, and creator.
