In a book that is at once a manifesto and a devotional guide, Trevethan vividly reminds us that holiness is an essential characteristic of the biblical Lord. Like few other books recently written, The Beauty of God's Holiness wakes readers from spiritual slumber and uncages the living God so often domesticated in our time.
The Beauty and Power of Holiness True holiness, through Christ, means peace, freedom, strength, and joy as we live according to the Spirit and shed the spiritual and emotional weights that hold us back. Best-selling author Derek Prince compassionately and clearly explains holy living so you can: Reflect God’s nature and character Learn your value as God’s special treasure Partake of God’s supernatural provisions Receive answers to prayers Overcome fear and condemnation Be equipped for doing good works Add real meaning to your life It is possible to live a life of holiness in everyday ways and transform your life!
The seventeenth-century Puritan theologian Jonathan Edwards has become popular again in contemporary theological discussion. Central to Edwards' theology is his concept of beauty. Delattre wrote the standard work on this topic half a century ago. However, Delattre approaches Edwards mainly as a philosopher, and he does not address how Edwards employs the concept of beauty to explain and defend traditional Reformed doctrines. Recent writings by McClymond, Holmes, and others have shown that defending the Reformed tradition is a fundamental concern of Edwards. This work reveals how Edwards, starting with the common notion that beauty means the appropriate proportional relationship, develops a theological aesthetic that contributes to a rational understanding of major doctrines such as the Trinity, Christology, and eschatology. It shows that Edwards is both an innovative speculative theologian and a staunch defender of Reformed orthodoxy.
Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.
This book is a unique meditation on the beauty of Christ and His saints and centers on several works of art by Fra Angelico. Saward has written a book not on art history but on the spendor of Catholic truth. Beauty is the splendor of truth.
Jehovah-tsidkenu, "the Lord our righeousness"; Jehovah-shalom, "the Lord our peace"; Jehovah-jireh, "the Lord will provide." This is a study of the twelve most common Hebrew names for God-and their significance and fulfillment in Christ. God's names reveal not only different dimensions of His character but also point to their fulfillment in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. This classic study examines the Old Testament names of God and the particular aspect of His character and dealings with man that each reveals. Names of God is a book that will help contemporary Christians better understand the glory, majesty, and power of God. (More than 115,000 in print)
