Publisher's Description

The goal of our creation was not simply that we might be happy, but happy in appreciating God's own glory. Not in reviewing our own accomplishments or in the enjoyment of our own sensual appetites. Not in the development of a healthy self-esteem or in the acquisition of a four-bedroom home with a three-car garage. We were made to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Nothing is more important than understanding this truth. This inspiring work helps us see that beauty has the power to convince the inquiring mind of truth. The soul's contact with God's beauty elicits love and forges in us a new affection that no earthly power can overcome. Enjoying God in the revelation of his beauty is the solution to our struggle with sin, the catalyst for substantive and lasting change and is the soul's satisfaction, with which no rival pleasure can hope to compete.

So what is it about God that when known and seen and experienced empowers the human soul to feel sickened in the presence of sin and satisfied in the divine embrace? That word again: Beauty.

Apatheism affects not just those outside the church but those inside the church who can't be bothered with their own religion let alone someone else's.

Editorial Reviews

Those who've enjoyed John Piper's writings will find similar themes in Sam Storms' fine book. Some would say he is more accessible, though he evidently shares Piper's appreciation for Jonathan Edwards and C S Lewis.

We need 'How to...' books but we benefit greatly from books that remind us what the 'one thing' is. You may be a fan of 'City Slickers' and be reminded of Billy Crystal's perplexed question to Jack Pallance, 'But what is that one thing?' We need 'How to...' books but we benefit greatly from books that remind us what the 'one thing' is.

"The more I ponder the source and ground of all our lasting joy, the more convinced I become that Sam Storms is right. It's the Beauty of God. In all his gifts we are to see him. Especially in the gospel.... Let Sam Storms guide you biblically and waken your heart to the Treasure of Christ who is the image of the Beauty of God."
"This book will waken your heart to the treasure of Christ who is in the image of the Beauty of God. This is a mind expanding book. He gives content to our fuzzy notion of infinity and helps us the scientific layman to grasp how the immense scale and complexity of our universe declare the glory of God. Thank you Sam Storms, reading your book has changed me. What more can I say?
