God created us 'to glorify and enjoy him forever.' But what does it mean to enjoy God? Michael Reeves has a knack not only for making great truths accessible, but for leading us to bask in the warmth of Christ. Our mediator not only in salvation, but in creation and the consummation, Christ isn't just a gift-giver - he is the Gift. As an example of devotional theology, this book stands out. If you want to love Christ more, you need a better view of him. Rejoicing in Christ gives you a front-row seat.
J. Gresham Machen Professor of Theology, Westminster Seminary California
Michael Reeves has written a simple and yet elegant introduction to the work of Jesus Christ. He provides a wonderful overview of Jesus in eternity, Jesus triumphing over evil and Jesus reigning forever. Reeves shows that for believers, our life is from Christ, and Christ is our life! His account of Christian doctrine about Jesus is complemented with a treasure trove of historical artwork depicting Jesus, stimulating the mind as well as the heart.

Can you talk too much about Christ? Michael Reeves argues no! This book calls us to rejoice in the one in whom is found all joy. No small Jesus here - Jesus writ large and made much of. Enjoy this book and enjoy the Christ to whom this book points.
