God’s Glory Alone – The Majestic Heart of Christian Faith and Life is the second title in the 5 Solas Series. The first volume by Thomas Schreiner, Faith Alone: The Doctrine of Justification walked readers through this important doctrine which was rediscovered in the sixteenth century. The latest installment is penned by David Vandrunen, professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics at Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, California.
God’s Glory Alone unfolds in three parts. Part one, The Glory of God in Reformed Theology summarizes the essence of the Reformation and is captured by the Latin words, soli Deo gloria – ”to God alone be the glory.”
Part two, The Glory of God in Scripture is a tour of redemptive history which presents the glory of God in both testaments and also includes a section the describes the glory of Christ in the glorification of his people.
Part three, Living for God’s Glory Today includes practical application which is an overflow of the first two sections. The author presents chapters that discuss prayer, worship, and the fear of the Lord.
Vandrunen’s work is welcome addition to the 5 Solas Series and is sure to serve pastors, theologians, and Christ-followers well, especially as we near the 500th year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
Soli Deo gloria!
