This is a study by Charles Ryrie of how the believer understands and lives in the light of God’s glory. In the process Ryrie takes the reader through a number of biblical texts and, in his own unique style, draws his points and material from the text. He begins with major texts of the Old Testament, especially Moses, and works up to the New Testament in passages such as 2 Corinthians 4, Ephesians 4, and Romans 5 and 8. Ryrie is always supportive of the local church and its stewardship before God. This is not a long theological read, but is pointed enough to encourage the believer in his walk with God.

- Cross, Creation and also Prophecy — There are three great mountain peaks of importance in Biblical history. First and foremost is Calvary. The cross is the center of all God’s workings with this world. If the believer could say with Paul, “I determined not to know any thing among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2), he would [...]
- America’s Testing — In his farewell address George Washington said that a nation is “a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.”1 More than two hundred years later America’s greatest animosity is to Christianity, and its greatest affection is to profligacy.
