Abstract:

How can we know who Christ really is? That question has been pondered through the ages. Yet the answer is simply that Jesus, as He is revealed through God's Word, has a glory -- an excellence, a spiritual beauty -- that speaks to our souls and says, "Yes, this is truth." It is like seeing the sun and knowing that it is light, or tasting honey and knowing it is sweet. There is no more important issue in life than seeing Jesus for who He really is, and savoring Him above all else. Let this book be your companion as you discover Him.
