I think this is the strongest endorsement that I have ever seen John Piper give to a book. The Crossway blog has these remarks from Piper about Jim Hamilton’s book, God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology. Piper writes:
“I was riveted. Never do I sit down and read sixty pages of ANY book that I get in the mail. But I could not stopâ€”could not stop reading and could not stop rejoicing over God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment. It is the kind of overview of redemptive history Edwards wanted to write. It’s what I hoped would be written.”
Piper is right. Hamilton’s book is a must-read. If you haven’t read it yet, you really need to make some time for this one. You can order it here.
All righty, then – I’ve read several rave reviews of this book so I’ve ordered it. I look forward to receiving it.
Thanks brother. it is officially on the wish list!
No surprise here. I started it recently. Jim is a superstar now! Buckle up!
Congrats brother. Praise the Lord. He has honored your hard work, my friend!
Amen. Well-deserved. A far lesser light also “raved” about it.
Read it and loved it. Magisterial, as Don Whitney calls it. Glad to see such a strong recommendation from so respected a figure.
Agree. This is an excellent book that will sharpen any sword. And it is well written to boot!
The Piper endorsement is a really big deal! I finished GGSTJ a couple weeks ago and am still pondering it. Jim’s written an incredible book. I don’t agree with all of his conclusions, but the scope of his work opens up very important interpretations that need to be discussed and considered. I have been sincerely blessed through reading his book.
I look forward to reading the book also.
