Product Description

Burns starts with the incarnation of the Son in John 1:14-18. John's language and imagery are derived from the Old Testament. He discusses the presence of the Word, the "walk" of the patriarchs, the visual fire and cloud, and the presence of Name. The ethics of presence are significant, because sin caused a sense of remoteness and mandated worshipful obedience. The "presence in sanctuary" is followed by the "problem of presence in the prophets." Though blessed with city and temple, the Israelites became oblivious to the Glory in their midst. So, God promised a New Covenant, sealed by the accomplishments of Christ and the indwelling of the Spirit. This enables believers "to enter the Most Holy Presence of God," even in the darkest of circumstances. The new-covenantal family is to reflect the Trinitarian presence of God as it lives in unity of love and servant-hood. The various strands are then brought together in the "new heaven and earth," the new Jerusalem whose "temple is the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb." The "dwelling of God" will be with his redeemed humanity, and "they will be his people without pain, tears, or death."

Endorsements

“This is an encouraging and helpful book by an insightful and seasoned scholar. In The Nearness of God, Lanier Burns sheds much light on a wonderful but neglected biblical theme—God’s presence. Readers will find their theology deepened, their hope rekindled, and their joy increased.” — Christopher W. Morgan, Professor of Theology, California Baptist University, Riverside, CA

Editorial Reviews

This is an encouraging and helpful book by an insightful and seasoned scholar. In His Presence for Our Pilgrimage, Lanier Burns sheds much light on a wonderful but neglected biblical theme—God’s presence. Readers will find their theology deepened, their hope rekindled, and their joy increased.
God’s presence is no minor topic as His Presence for Our Pilgrimage shows so beautifully. God with us is about how he draws near. So draw near to this fine book and draw nearer to God.
Our twenty-first century world flounders as never before trying to find a spiritual center of gravity. Here is a contemporary, yet scholarly, text to stabilize, strengthen and encourage seeking hearts. Burns shoots his arrows straight to the Problem-Solver, the ultimate, easily-understood Answer for inner peace of mind. I highly recommend this excellent tool for pastors, ministry leaders and anyone in pursuit of ultimate truth.
