This new book by a trusted Old Testament scholar directs the student and pastor to an aspect of biblical truth often lacking in contemporary preaching and teaching: God's unsurpassed majesty and greatness. Walter Kaiser suggests that a key way to recapture this important doctrine in the pulpit is through the preaching of the Old Testament, itself an oft-neglected or mishandled discipline. By expositing ten great Old Testament passages that are rife with evidence of God's majesty, Kaiser shows how today's preacher might address this deficiency. He also shows how such exercises as word studies and historical/archaeological studies can be used to help pastors make the Old Testament relevant to their congregations.
1. Magnifying The Incomparability Of Our God Isaiah 40:9-312. Magnifying The Greatness Of Our God Daniel 4:1-373. Magnifying The Word Of Our God Numbers 20:1-134. Magnifying The Wonderful Name Of Our God Jeremiah 32:1-445. Magnifying The Pardoning Grace Of Our God Micah 7:11-206. Magnifying The Holy Spirit From Our God Zechariah 4:1-147. Magnifying The Awesome Character Of Our God Psalm 139:1-188. Magnifying The Glory Of Our God Ezekiel 1:1-289. Magnifying The Grace Of Giving From Our God 1 Chronicles 29:6-1910. Magnifying The Holiness Of Our God Isaiah 6:1-13
"Rarely does a book come along that elucidates with both scope and depth the breathtaking splendor of the character of God, all while modeling how to preach and teach the sacred text. Walter Kaiser applies his passion for God's multifaceted majesty with wonderful biblical scholarship and insightful shepherding sensitivity. This work is a window into the grandeur of God, helping us to see that if we refuse to properly proclaim the unequaled God of the Bible correctly, we will never see ourselves, our culture, and his church in the proper light. Kaiser skillfully steers us on the right path to exposit and enjoy these biblical vistas of the Majesty on High."--Dorington G. Little, senior pastor, First Congregational Church, Hamilton, Massachusetts"Hats off to Walt Kaiser for demonstrating again that, in the end, the Scriptures are about the greatness of God. Using passage after passage of the Old Testament, Kaiser reminds us that the real subject of the Bible is God himself: his marvelous person, his wisdom-filled ways, his loving will. This book will serve as a bracing theocentric tonic for all who are determined to avoid those anthropocentric treatments of Scripture that seem so prevalent today."--Duane Litfin, president, Wheaton College"Those who preach about the greatness of God do business in deep waters. The Majesty of God in the Old Testament by Walter Kaiser will help all of us who read, teach, or preach to navigate those waters."--Haddon Robinson, author, Biblical Preaching; Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary"From a veteran Old Testament scholar come model expositions of ten passages that highlight aspects of the greatness of God, all laid out as resources for preachers and teachers to draw from. These object lessons are truly a breath of fresh air."--J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College"Walter Kaiser helps readers capture a glimpse of the incredible nature of God as portrayed in the Old Testament. Each chapter features an aspect of God that cumulatively acclaims his majesty and serves as a model for preaching and teaching. Readers will be drawn to the pages of the Old Testament to see and experience the thrill of knowing this great God and being known by him."--Scott M. Gibson, Haddon W. Robinson Professor of Preaching and ministry director of the Center for Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "Kaiser unpacks the vast wealth of several key Old Testament passages about God and his glory. These studies are wonderful and instructive examples of how to do biblical exposition and are especially fine examples of how to deal with 'Old Testament' passages. But much more than that, each chapter will bring you face to face with the divine majesty in a powerful and life-changing way. Clear, straightforward, accessible, and precise, this is a superb resource in every way."--John MacArthur, president, Grace to You"I can't think of anyone better to lift our sight to the stimulating reality of the majesty of God than my friend Walt Kaiser. Unfortunately, God has often been tarnished by the smallness of our minds. Kaiser's winsome yet direct and clear writing will put the magnificent reality of God's glory in its proper perspective."--Joe Stowell, teaching pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel; former president, Moody Bible Institute
