Book: A Peculiar Glory: How the Christian Scriptures Reveal Their Complete Truthfulness: What books and words make up the Christian Scriptures?
What do the Scriptures claim for themselves?
How can we know the Scriptures are true?
How are the Scriptures confirmed by the peculiar glory of God?
John Piper examines the Bible’s self-authenticating nature and unique ability to showcase God’s unmatched glory, laying a solid foundation for the belief that God’s Word is absolutely perfect and totally reliable.
Says the author, ‘I do not merely hold a view of Scripture. I am held. The glory of God shining through his Word has been an irresistible treasure.’
The Bible is not a masterpiece hanging on the wall of an Alpine chalet. Rather, it is a window on the wall through which we see and admire the stunning Alpine view.
