Your concept of God can become worn thin by years of familiarity, hard circumstances, or a society that frowns on his uniqueness or even his existence. But when you lay aside these threadbare images and return your gaze to God's awesome character, you come away not only refreshed but inwardly different.
In this book Charles Ryrie turns your thoughts specifically to the glory of God. It's a subject little written about and perhaps even less understood, but in his gifted way of making dry theology everyday practical, Dr. Ryrie clearly explains what it is, how it changed the men and women of Scripture, and how it can change you.
If your Christianity hasn't been making a difference lately, perhaps your idea of God has lost its glory. Allow this book to help you reflect anew on his glory now and to encourage you that one day you will see that glory face-to-face. You won't be the same tomorrow.
