'A Peculiar Glory'

13/04/2016

Union's President Michael Reeves spent time with John Piper in the run-up to the release of A Peculiar Glory: How the Christian Scriptures Reveal Their Complete Truthfuness. Michael interviewed Piper about the book, and told his own story of a battle with unbelief – and the power of the scriptures to show the glory and beauty of Jesus.

Piper's book is an argument for the self-authenticating nature of the Bible. God’s peculiar glory shines through his word. The Spirit of God enlightens the eyes of our heart. And in one self-authenticating sight, our mind is sure, and our heart is satisfied. Justified certainty and solid joy meet in the peculiar glory of God. Reeves comments,

A Peculiar Glory should quickly establish itself as a modern classic on the Bible. Clearly and methodically laying out the case for why we can have absolute confidence in the Bible as God's own word, it gives to faith both muscle and joy. The day John Owen persuaded me that the Christian Scriptures are self-authenticating was a glorious moment of liberation for me. I hope and expect that John Piper will bring that same liberation to many with this book.
