Enjoy the spiritual feast served in The Beauty and Glory of Christ, a compilation of the addresses given at the Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary’s annual conference in August 2010 at Grand Rapids, Michigan. Each essay sets before readers the unsearchable riches of the Lord Jesus Christ, the hope of our glory and the glory of our hope. Topics include Christ’s beauty prophesied and typified in Isaiah and Song of Solomon; Christ’s glory in His incarnation, earthly ministry, and death on the cross; Christ in historical theology and everyday life; and Christ’s glorious exaltation in His resurrection and in His triumph in the book of Revelation.

This collection of addresses is a great help to filling this dreadful lacuna. Page after page forces the reader to reckon with this one supreme fact: Christianity is Christ and being a Christian is first and foremost being ravished by His beauty and living for His glory. May God give this volume a wide spiritual impact, for its vision of Christ is sorely needed.
—Michael A. G. Haykin, professor of church history and biblical spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
To know Christ as He was and is, to grow in affection for Him, to appropriate Him in His offices as teacher, Lamb of God, and protecting Shepherd of His people—this is the essence of Christian living and the condition of Christian usefulness. Reading these chapters one’s response is, ‘O that my soul could love and praise Him more; His beauties trace, His majesty adore.’
—Geoff Thomas, pastor, Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales
