The Gospel Coalition (TGC) is an international ministry based out of the USA under the leadership of Tim Keller and D. A. Carson. TGC is being used by God to assist Christians, local churches and missionaries around the world to equip them for ministry and in their understanding of Scripture. For the latter, TGC has a rich and deep ministry which provides resources in various forms to help believers understand Scripture better. One of these resources is the semi annual conferences they hold which has general and breakout sessions. The conferences are centered on a theme which the general sessions focus on and the breakout sessions are available for other areas of focus.

In 2012 TGC held its first women’s conference titled Here is Our God: God’s Revelation of Himself in Scripture. The general sessions address eight theophany passages beginning in Exodus and ending in Revelation. TGC decided to put these sessions in book form carrying the same title as the conference itself. The contributors and their passages are as follows:

Tim Keller – Exodus 19
Paige Brown – 1 Kings 8
John Piper – Isaiah 6
Carrie Sandom – Psalm 40
Nancy Leigh DeMoss – Matthew 17:1-15
Jenny Salt – 2 Corinthians 12
Kathleen Nielson – Revelation 4-5
D. A. Carson – Revelation 21-22
The central point of the theme that runs through the book is that through His self-revelation in the Old Testament God is pointing us to Christ as revealed in the New Testament. One thing that particularity stood out to me in Tim Keller’s chapter (Exodus 19) was the connection the writer of Hebrews makes with Christ and Exodus 19. In Exodus 19 the Israelites have great fear and distance between then and God as Moses (their mediator) is on the mountain with God.

I really loved this collection of essays. These essays or speeches were originally given at the Gospel Coalition 2012 National Women's Conference. The theme of the conference was Here Is Our God. "The overall goal for these talks was to gain from God’s Word a renewed vision of God and his sweeping purposes of redemption, as he shows himself to us through his revelation." The contributors were: Tim Keller, Paige Brown, John Piper, Carrie Sandom, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Jenny Salt, Kathleen Nielson, and D.A. Carson. The scripture passages discussed were: Exodus 19, 1 Kings 8, Isaiah 6, Psalm 40, Matthew 17:1-15, 2 Corinthians 12, Revelation 4-5, and Revelation 21-22. Overall, I thought there was great balance between the Old Testament and the New. I have read some of these authors before, but, there were some that were new to me as well. That is always nice! A collection of essays can be a great introduction to new authors.

I loved the theme of this book! I did! I loved the focus being on God and God's Revelation of Himself in His Word. I loved how each chapter focused on one particular passage of Scripture. I loved the expository nature of each chapter. I loved the layout of each chapter. All chapters are written with clarity. I also loved how all the chapters seem to come together to create a big picture. That wasn't surprising, but, it was wonderful all the same.

Favorite quote:

"Jesus was not taken to the cross. Jesus went to the cross. His life was not stolen from him. He laid down his life. The glory of the God who was willing to ordain and institute atonement became the glory of the God who will provide atonement. The glory of the God who is the atonement.

This book is awesome. I learnt do much about God. I loved the biblical exploration of God and his temple, through the old and New Testament. I particularly liked the explanations of the apocalyptic literature of the bible and the significance of the Old Testament temple

Ours is an age of conferences. Dozens of conferences vie for our attention, from a variety of ministries. For those who cannot attend, livestreaming is a way to experience the thrill from afar. Another common way to expand the reach of a conference is to turn the series of messages into a book. The success of such books is usually limited, but in this book we have an exception.

"Here is Our God: God’s Revelation of Himself in Scripture" (Crossway, 2014), is the latest book from The Gospel Coalition. This book is actually a compilation of the messages from the women’s 2012 TGC conference. Reading the book, however, I am not transported to the scene of thousands of women meeting together in a conference. Instead the message of each plenary session is powerfully communicated in this book, and the entire theme of the conference—suitable for men and women—comes together in this one short volume.

Three men (Tim Keller, D.A. Carson, and John Piper) join five women (Paige Brown, Carrie Sandom, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Jenny Salt, and Kathleen Nielson) in expositing the Word of God. Each author tackles a text which offers us a revelation of God. Exodus 19, 1 Kings 8, Isaiah 6, Matthew 17, Revelation 21 and other passages are mined for what they tell us of our God. The chapters flow together well, and reinforce the argument of the work as a whole. Each author in their unique way contributes to a dazzling picture of our God and His glory.

D.A. Carson (one of the editors of this book) is known for his advocacy of biblical theolgoy, and this is on full display in the contributions from each author in this title. The grand themes of the Bible are followed as we truly encounter God through the book. The application is poignant, and the messages are powerful.
