The God We Worship
Adoring the One Who Pursues, Redeems, and Changes His People
This is not a book about you.
It’s not about any person who’s going to pick it up.
No, these addresses fix on a much more glorious, worthy, and fascinating topic: the God, the Creator, the Redeemer as revealed in the Bible. The study of God is like a brilliant diamond—we should keep holding it up to the light to see new details of its beauty.
Before the awe of such a God, what room is there to focus on man? Our only place is to respond to him—and even our response does not depend on us! We must not only worship him, but also—if our worship is to be meaningful and not cheapened—learn how he is to be worshiped.
We were all created to worship, but our worship runs amok, and we pour out our praise and affection before false gods. Meanwhile, we all too often go through the motions of worship as we join others in the pew on Sundays. Who can restore us and make us the worshipers we are supposed to be? Only God himself.
This group of noted pastor-scholars redirect our attention to our glorious Lord, showing how he pursues, redeems, and profoundly changes his worshipers—and challenging us to respond to him as he desires.
The Princeton Regional Conference on Reformed Theology presents the following pastor-scholars, who delve into the glory of God and into his grace in making sinners into worshipers:
- Bryan Chapell God’s Glory Revealed
- Charles D. Drew Called by God to Worship
- Richard D. Phillips Sought by Christ to Worship
- Joseph “Skip” Ryan Guided by God’s Sovereign Providence
- Philip Graham Ryken Redeemed by God’s Sovereign Mercy
- Michael S. Horton Sanctifying Grace
- Richard D. Phillips Our Holy Redeemer
- Michael A. G. Haykin The Spirit of Holiness
- R. Albert Mohler Know the Truth
- D. A. Carson I Am the Truth
Learn from these teachers about the glory of, the providential work of, and our proper response to the amazing God we worship.
