Dr. Kreider, professor of theological studies at Dallas Theological Seminary for many years, has given us a very good book. It is a clearly written, edifying, and timely. In addition, it is exegetically careful, and theologically significant. The author illuminates familiar Bible stories by looking at them from a different angle than is commonthat of the humility of God. This is not a book that shrinks the greatness of the God of Scripture, that cuts him down to our size. On the contrary, it recounts how the biblical story shows this great and awesome God humbling himself again and again to rescue the likes of us! The questions at the back make this volume ideal for personal or group study. I pray the Lord will use it to promote a passion for generous humility in conservative evangelicalism."
Understanding God is a gracious gift from God. We lack the natural capacity to comprehend him. We must rely upon God to disclose himself to us. In this book God employs one of his gifted servants for that purpose. Glenn Kreider, by explaining the biblical text, helps us to appreciate what God has revealed about himself. Surprising to some, shocking to others, unappealing to the proud, missed by the mighty, but challenging to the disciple and so very comforting to the weak and destitute: God humbles himself for our sake. Read this book. Meditate upon its biblical teaching. See God. Be changed, comforted and challenged.
