Book Review: The God We Worship

The God We Worship. Edited by Jonathan L. Master. 2016. P&R Publishing. 192 pages. [Source: Review copy]

The God We Worship is a collection of sermons preached at various conferences held by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals--the Princeton Conference. It includes sermons by Bryan Chapell, Charles D. Drew, Richard D. Phillips, Joseph "Skip" Ryan, Philip Graham Ryken, Michael Horton, Michael A.G. Haykin, R. Albert Mohler, and D.A. Carson.

From the preface,
All of these sermons explore and expound upon the nature of God--who he is, how he draws sinners to himself, how he is at work providentially, and how he is to be approached by us in worship. In a sense, the glory of these sermons is that they never begin with man as their subject. They are focused on the triune God revealed in the Bible: the Creator, the Redeemer, and the source of all that is true.
I definitely enjoyed reading The God We Worship. I enjoyed reading these sermons. While I was familiar with most of these preachers, one or two were new to me. I particularly liked the focus of these sermons: God. These are good and meaty sermons that any Christian can benefit from reading and reflecting upon. Each sermon is built around expounding particular scripture verses.
