Mark’s #14 – Uneclipsing the Son by Rick Holland

“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” – especially this one, because the cover is awful. Outer aesthetics aside, the point and purpose of the book is timely and much needed.

The knowledge of, love for, and glory of Christ should be the all-consuming passion of all Christians.  In fact, this is exactly what Paul prays for Christians in his letter to the Ephesians, “…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe… (Eph. 17-19).

This book does a good job of reminding Christians what it really means to be ‘Christian’ – To behold the glory and majesty of Christ.
