"The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple" (Ps 19:7). In our postmodern age, in which uncertainty is rampant and truth so often obscured, believers must stand upon the sure foundation of God's written revelation. In this book, The Beauty and Glory of God's Word, edited by pastor, professor and scholar, Joel R. Beeke, well-known scholars have contributed a collection of biblically based essays that provide encouragement in trusting the Bible as God's inerrant, authoritative, clear, and sufficient word, as well as guidelines for how to use the Bible for personal joy and practical living.
Divided into three sections, this collection of studies considers the uniqueness of the Bible as the written word of God; highlights the glorious properties of God's word that instills both admiration and conviction regarding the sufficiency of Scripture for "teaching, reproof, correction and training in righteousness" (2 Tim 3:16); and reveals and reminds readers to move with admiration and conviction into meditation, obedience, and delight in the beautiful life of feeding on the written, spirit-breathed word of God. Beeke concludes this collection of studies on the Scriptures with the practical exhortation of the apostle James to receive and be doers of the Word.
The Beauty and Glory of God's Word reminds readers that the Bible is the fully inspired, "Spirit-breathed," Word of God that brings us to a saving knowledge and understanding of who God is and who we are in Him-to rightly orient us in the fabric of His Story and intended reality that we might delight and live.
Contributors include Michael Barrett, Joel Beeke, Gerald Bilkes, Ronald Kalifungwa, David Murray, Jack Schoeman, Geoff Thomas, and William VanDoodewaard.

“Because the Bible is God’s Word, it possesses a unique and exquisite beauty that sets it above every other book in the world. Because it is God’s Word, it communicates with us, challenging our assumptions, commanding our attention, and correcting our behavior. This book about God’s Word is a fitting reminder to us that the Bible is no mere religious text, but a voice from another world speaking into ours with clarity, authority, beauty, and grace, suitable for all people, in all situations, and at all times. The great themes addressed in this collection of studies will serve to heighten our appreciation of who God is, how He has spoken to us, and what it is that He actually says.”
—Iain D. Campbell, minister in the Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis

All creation is communicating and declaring the glory of God. The creation communication is understandable even though it is speechless and silent. Since words are not involved, people of every language and every age have received the same message and there is nothing lost in translation. God has also given His written Word and it is designed to teach and to reveal what could not otherwise be known. God has record His character and the plan of salvation in His Word. God's Word can be trusted because it is authoritative, infallible, inerrant, sufficient, perfect and complete. The Word of God is clear and it calls us to know it, to read it, to listen to it, to understand it, to memorize it and to meditate on it.
This is a short book, but it was very applicable and thought provoking. I truly came away with a clearer understanding of the beauty and glory of God's Word.
