Publisher's Description

Though in all things God's Word is the final authority, our Christian tradition, as inherited from centuries of careful reflection and endeavoring to be true to the teaching of Scripture, can greatly enlighten us. Nowhere is this blend of respectful listening to the wisdom of the past and faithfulness to the Bible more necessary than in our contemporary reformulations of the doctrine of God's person.

Bruce Ware believes that while tradition's emphasis on God's metaphysical perfection and His supremacy over the world is correct, we must refine our understanding of the way in which He relates to us. While retaining the deepest concerns of the historic tradition, Ware offers a more rational view of God's dealings with His children–a view that is reflected in Scripture's own testimony of Him. Ware then applies this concept of real divine exaltation and real divine-human relationship to the areas of our prayer life, confidence in God and His guidance of us.

    Simply excellent. I found myself repeatedly putting the book down to worship and praise, only to pick it back up and soon do so again. As the earlier reviewers have mentioned this book is no light weight, but it's absolutely worth the effort. If you've ever wrestled with how God's sovereignty is compatible with man's responsibility, I highly recommend this work. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

    This is without a doubt one of the most important books that I have read. The providence of God is an important subject, for it describes God's relation to the universe. But, it is also an extremely diffcult doctrine to grasp, and many modern day controversies have arisen from it. The content of the book is challenging but well worth the effort. Reading God's Greater Glory wasn't just an intellectual exercise but also a devotional one, as Al Mohler (one of the endorsers) has admitted. And it has certainly caused me to praise and glorify our wonderful God. This book has stirred my heart like few other books have, and I'm grateful that God in his providence has guided my every step to lay may hands on this awesome book. As I said, the subject matter can be difficult (Ware puts his cookies on the top shelf, as one reviewer said), but I encourage you to make the effort, you will be glad you did. Most definitely one of the best books I have ever read!

    I anticipate looking back on "God's Greater Glory" as one of the most important books I've ever read. In this short but thorough survey of the providence of God, Ware sets forth the biblical case for a God whose sovereignty is exhaustive, universal, and intentional. After reading the book I am convinced its vision is biblical and feel prepared to defend that vision from the Bible. I plan to turn to it for years to come for help in explaining God's relationship to all of life.Something I particularly appreciated about the author's argument was how incredibly nuanced it was. Nearly every conceivable facet of God's relationship with His creation was explored in glorious detail. Furthermore, Ware repeated called his readers to praise God for this or that attribute. Reading this book was very much a devotional exercise.I would add a caution to my review. "God's Greater Glory" is written on a rather academic level and I would not recommend it to the average layman (something like "The Invisible Hand" by Sproul may be better). Ware employs many theological and philosophical terms that could bury the young Bible student. If, however, you are fairly familiar with theological terminology and are able to follow a tight argument, "God's Greater Glory" may be the most influential book you'll ever read.

    Bruce Ware's "God's Greater Glory" is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It continues the excellence of his other contributions, including "The Grace of God, the Bondage of the Will" and "God's Lesser Glory," and is a marvelous overview of the sovereign and compatibilistic providence of God, that fully upholds and honors both God's transcendence and immanence. Especially appreciated are Ware's view regarding God's parallel relationship to space and time, and his conclusion about God's assymetrical relationship to good and evil. The valuable appendix of the book contains yet another of Ware's tightly reasoned refutations of Open Theism. This volume, which covers both the philosophical/theological and practical aspects of God's providence, ought to be read and mastered by every student of theology. It's a tough one to put down.
