Editorial Reviews

Endorsement - Rev. Dr. Iain D. Campbell
This collection of essays will help answer that question as we are led into the glory of God’s triune being, as well as to see the Father in the face of Jesus Christ and to trust again in the care our heavenly Father takes of us. This is a book to enlighten the mind and warm the heart. I cannot commend it highly enough.
Endorsement - Steven J. Lawson
Doctrinally rich and practically helpful, this concise volume is an impressive compilation by a team of gifted authors, each man making a significant contribution that is well worth your effort to read. I am certain that you will find this substantial work to be mind-sharpening, heart-stimulating, and soul-stirring.
Endorsement - Rev. Dr. Jon D. Payne
Read this book! In The Beauty and Glory of the Father, not only are we given a thoroughly biblical portrait of the nature and works of our heavenly Father, but we are also helpfully taught how to think and live as His adopted children.
Endorsement - Joseph A. Pipa Jr.
Rarely has a book been written on the beauty and glory of God the Father. This is a collection of the messages given at Puritan Seminary’s theology conference in August 2012. Unlike many anthologies, this one is a jewel.
