Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"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

"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

"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

"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

By Ray F Van Neste on August 15, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for preachers, providing a homiletics refresher as veteran bible scholar and preacher Kaiser walks through the study and preaching of 10 Old Testament texts. Beyond simply giving help for these 10 passages, Kaiser models the preaching of the OT with a concentration on the character of God. He is particularly concerned with the need for us to be teaching our people about the greatness of God.

This book is a collection of ten messages from the OT related to God's majesty. But more than that, it is a series of helps on how to study and preach these passages. Kaiser does a great job of exegeting the passages, bringing in historical data, and systematizing the information. The messages thoroughly honor God and, as such, make great devotional reading as well.

I love this book, for it clearly shows God's majesty, power, and sovereignty. Thank you, Dr. Kaiser. I have had sat under your teaching at BSF, and your book causes me to clearly focus and trust on our loving and merciful God.

Kaiser's ability to make much of God while teaching others to do so is amazing. Not a text book, but a very helpful resource for those who want to make God the focus of their teaching and preaching instead of mankind. Warning: you read this book, it will change the way you teach.
