Restoring the Glory of the NAME: the Story's Ultimate Good News (Paperback)


Not Currently On Our Shelves. Usually Ships in 1-5 Days.

Retells the Bible Story's main plot line, revealing what matters most to God, how everything depends on that factor; his highest purpose for creating earth, mankind, sexual human reproduction, and the new birth; how the resolution of the Story's main conflict--and the prize for which its war rages--is the ultimate Good News, and what God is doing in this age to bring it about. It is not what most people think.

Reveals the meanings of God's names in which lie what makes the Good News good.

Describes the nobility God planned and created us to live, and why we fall so short of what might have been.

Exposes the force that leaves all people spiritually and morally dead, the essential sin by which we insult God, and describes his actions by which only he can restore life.

Argues that God's main activity is restoring people to our original image of him in a way that vindicates his own Name, and that by doing so he will prove himself to be the righteous and good Restorer of what he began in creation. This is the ultimate Good News, our essential hope. It answers Jesus' prayer finally to vindicate and restore the Father's Name, what matters most to both him and us.

Warns against any empty man-centered "gospel" that appeals mainly to human self-interest, that does not fully nourish with God-centeredness, only contributing to the spiritual and moral famine that is ravaging our nation by relegating God to the role of a sky Santa.

Invites pastors, Bible teachers, missionaries, theologians, and evangelists to ascertain, live, and teach God's central purpose for relationship with humanity, the good news he has commissioned us to convey.
