The Glory of God

Posted by
A disagreement has broken out on whether or not Tom Schreiner is correct when he suggests (in his forthcoming book, New Testament Theology) that the most basic theme of the New Testament is, "God magnifying himself through Jesus Christ by means of the Holy Spirit." Justin Taylor drew attention to the response of made by John Piper to Ben Witherington's remark that Schreiner was guilty of "recreat(ing) God in our own image." Piper's response includes the statement that, "God's exaltation of his own glory is not narcissistic but loving, because it directs our attention away from ourselves to the one glorious reality that can satisfy our souls forever."

For the full response by Piper, go here.
