REVIEW OF THE GOD WE WORSHIP
(Adoring the One Who Pursues, Redeems and Changes His People)
[Edited by Jonathan Master; P & R Publishing; 2016; 174 pp.]

Most years the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals (ACE) hosts the Princeton Regional Conference on Reformed Theology. The messages are given by top-notch pastor-scholars who know how to inform the head and enflame the heart. These ten transcribed messages begin at the beginning—THE GOD WE WORSHIP. Every
bit of reality revolves around the kind of Being Who God is.

This vibrant collection gives us a sure and safe foundation from which to build our Christian faith and our very lives. Having served as a local pastor for 31 years and for a decade in ministry to students. I have seen
the importance of a good theological foundation as critical for Christian growth to maturity. Just as children
who are not fed and nurtured well struggle through life, so young Christians may struggle for a lifetime when
they are not properly grounded in the faith early on. This book is a primer to get Christians started and then
showing the reader the Christians they endorse and the charlatans they expose.

Like a baseball manager bringing out his line-up at the beginning of the game, let me show you who is going
to be the ‘players’ in this most important book:
1. GOD’S GLORY REVEALED by Bryan Chapell
2. CALLED BY GOD TO WORSHIP by Charles Drew
3. SOUGHT BY CHRIST TO WORSHIP by Richard Phillips
4. GUIDED BY GOD’S SECRET PROVIDENCE by Joseph ‘Skip’ Ryan
5. REDEEMED BY GOD’S SOVEREIGN MERCY by Philip Ryken
6. SANCTIFYING GRACE by Michael Horton
7. OUR HOLY REDEEMER by Richard Phillips
8. THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS by Michael Haykin
9. KNOW THE TRUTH by Al Mohler
10. I AM THE TRUTH by Don Carson

I commend this to all serious Christians—serious about knowing more of the God they profess to know, serious about honoring Him in their lifetime; serious about speaking the truth about Him to whosoever will listen, and serious about enjoying Him forever!
