One response to “Do You Love God’s Glory?

  1. Theologian

    Jim,

    I seek to be enabled by the Holy Spirit to love God’s glory and I must say that as a businessman who has multiple responsibilities I am not “thrilled” to see the publication of this book. Am I glad it exists? Sure. Am I thankful for the scholarship that went into it’s making? Of course. Am I thrilled by it’s publication? No I am not. Does this mean I do not love God’s glory? I do not think so. Those of us in the reformed community who have a passion for God’s glory would be well served to refrain from the use of these type of hyperbolic expressions.
