Here Is Our God (The Gospel Coalition) [eBook]
God’s Revelation of Himself in Scripture
“I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up.” – Isaiah 6:1
Scripture records a number of instances in which God visibly revealed himself to his people, offering a glimpse of his stunning beauty and overwhelming glory. These awe-inspiring manifestations of God’s presence—known as “theophanies”—give us wonderful insights into his character, will, and salvation.
In this collection of biblical expositions, eight prominent Bible teachers explore key passages in which God displayed himself in a spectacular revelation.
From the giving of the law at Mt. Sinai to Christ’s glorious transfiguration, the passages examined in this book challenge us to look afresh at our God—that we might truly know, love, and serve him.
