Exploring the Glory of God: New Horizons for a Theology of Glory

With the aim of envisioning new horizons for a theology of glory, this book offers fresh biblical, theological, and scientific perspectives on the subject of divine self-revelation and human response to the manifestations of divine presence. The first four chapters explore the biblical origins of divine glory within the nation of Israel, the glorious encounter between Moses and God, and the Christological dimensions of glory in Johannine and Pauline writings. These chapters demonstrate how the biblical text inherently weaves aspects of creation, calling, covenant relationship, revelation, Christology, ecclesiology, and eschatology into a remarkable tapestry of divine glory. Five theological essays cover the role of the Holy Spirit and the worshipful response of believers to the glory of God, as well as expositions on the glory-themed writings of Jonathan Edwards, Karl Barth, Oscar Romero, and Etty Hillesum. These theological writers provoke challenging questions by emphasizing how the theme of glory paradoxically encompasses both otherworldly perfection and worldly sinfulness. This book concludes with two chapters that focus on the natural and physical sciences, revealing how God’s glory is displayed in the heavens and on earth. The chapters in this book demonstrate the importance of the subject of divine glory in the study of the nature of the triune God.
