In this short book for young adults, Derek Thomas explains what the Bible means when it talks about glory. Beginning with the Creation, he explains how the reflection of God’s glory was not completely destroyed when sin entered the world, but it was broken. Thomas then goes on to explain how this glory of God was perfectly represented in the person of Jesus; how it is partially restored in Christians; and how it will be perfectly restored in the new heavens and the new earth.

Part of Christian discipleship is getting this hope down into your heart until you really believe it, and it begins to change your longings and your living. Dr. Thomas, as a sympathetic shepherd, will guide you in the truth of glorification to that end.
