I have to say that The Darkness and the Glory is quite possibly the most "spiritual" book that I have ever read. And I mean "spiritual" in the sense that it truly delves deeply into spiritual warfare and spiritual realities like demons, angels, and spiritual backdrops behind the surface of our earthly existence. As I said before, the subject matter caused me to slow way, way down in order to try to soak in the mind-blowing realities. The book took me behind the scenes of events such as the crucifixion, challenging me to look more deeply and think more spiritually concerning events that I have visited and revisited before but now saw in a new, breathtaking light. I felt like I was diving into spiritual realities so challenging that I had to take a moment, catch my breath, and ask myself, "Do I really believe this? Do I really live in the light of this transcendent spiritual reality?" It was heartbreaking, shocking, frustrating, thought-provoking, and life-infusing. In Dr. Harris' own words from his previous book, The Cup and the Glory, "This book is meat, not milk." And I felt exactly the same way the entire time I was reading The Darkness and the Glory.
It was great to see how obvious it was that this book stands as the sequel to The Cup and the Glory. Dr.Read more ›
It just keeps getting better with the Glory Books. If you are interested in reading something spiritually substantial, and not just simply another book, you'll enjoy The Darkness & The Glory by Greg Harris. It is the second book in his glory book series, and well worth the time. These books are borne out of many years of experience and biblical meditation. Most books on the market are a product of publishers demands, while The Darkness & The Glory is a product of a man's walk with Almighty God. I look forward to every chapter, in each of the glory books. I was refreshed to see in this second book in the series, the same commitment to Scripture, and the power that Scripture, when explained well, can really change lives. I do not read or study or preach the same because of these books. In the early years of ministry, I sought sermons, because of these books and this author, I seek Truth; there is a big difference--a difference worth reading.
Dr. Harris examines the crucifixion from Christ's perspective. He asks questions that draw our attention to often overlooked details. One question he poses is: Who was present at the crucifixion? While most believers immediately think of the human witnesses, the author asks us to consider others who were present, unseen by earthly eyes. Satan was there along with the whole demonic world and their entire arsenal. The holy angels were also present, watching and waiting with great anticipation and fear to see what God would do. And, of course, God Himself was there
I highly recommend The Darkness and the Glory to anyone seeking to understand more fully the crucifixion of Christ. Your love for Christ will grow as you contemplate what occurred during those three hours when Christ bore the continuous attacks of all demonic powers and the wrath of God so that we could spend eternity with Him. You will never look at the cross in the same way again. Although we will spend all eternity trying to fully understand Calvary, this book will greatly enrich your appreciation of our great salvation, our great God and our great Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
When you understand all that Jesus endured on the cross, and when you recognize that He received what YOU deserve, you're bound to get emotional as you read Harris' clear explanations in this book. I know it brought me to tears at times.
Yet the books ends by reminding the reader that Christ is risen! And not only is He risen, but He's made Christians His fellow heirs!
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
