The providence of God is a doctrine Christians struggle to understand. Scripture affirms that God is sovereign, that he governs all the affairs of creation. Yet we, his creatures, make choices every day, and God holds us morally responsible for those choices. How can human freedom fit into the 'purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will'? Bruce Ware explores this question in this book. God's Greater Glory: The Exalted God of Scripture and the Christian Faith (9781581344431) by Bruce A. Ware.

Bruce Ware believes that while tradition's emphasis on God's metaphysical perfection and His supremacy over the world is correct, we must refine our understanding of the way in which He relates to us. While retaining the deepest concerns of the historic tradition, Ware offers a more rational view of God's dealings with His children–a view that is reflected in Scripture's own testimony of Him. Ware then applies this concept of real divine exaltation and real divine-human relationship to the areas of our prayer life, confidence in God and His guidance of us.

  • When Dr. Bruce Ware's published God's Greater Glory: The Exalted God of Scripture and the Christian Life in 2004, this was the second of two books dealing with Open Theism. His first was titled, God's Lesser Glory, which came out in 2001.

    God's Greater Glory is a serviceable book providing a brief overview on the Doctrine of God and its related topics. Dr. Ware briefly addresses such perennially difficult questions such as the relationship between God's sovereignty and human freedom and the foreknowledge of God. He also includes an extended discussion on middle knowledge and compatibilist middle knowledge. The latter seems to be a formulation that is unique to Dr. Ware given his leanings toward a more Calvinistic approach to salvation.

    If you're looking for something more stout and in-depth re: the Doctrine of God, then feel free to peruse some classic Systematic Theology texts by Francis Turretin, Herman Bavinck, Charles Hodge, and the like. For something more contemporary, there is Dr. John Frame's comprehensive work, The Doctrine of God. By the way, Dr. Ware references the latter quite extensively in the footnotes of God's Greater Glory. Lastly, this book explores highbrow topics without getting lost in the jargon. Dr. Ware's book is neither difficult nor a cakewalk, but somewhere in the middle in terms of readability. God's Greater Glory is worth a read.

  • Another master work from Dr. Ware. But then, Dr. Ware has been a stalwart buttress against liberalism, open theism, Arminianism, and a whole raft of other un-Biblical "isms". A true hero of the faith.

    The chapter on prayer (Chapter 7) is recommended by the elders of my church for Biblical guidance on prayer.

  • There have been countless books written that attempt to cover the difficult theological subjects such as the free-will of man vs the Sovereignty of God. But this one encapsulates the positions unusually well, perhaps even the best that I have seen. The author's academic expertise shines through the work, but it does not over-power it. In other words, for a man with great academic accomplishment and intelligence, he encapsulates complex doctrinal matters in a way that is very readable for the non-academician.

  • This is a good book. Ware has exalted God in his writing. I would highly recommend it. John Frame's "No Other God" is a little bit easier and quicker read on the same subject; Ware's book has a little more detail, and more application.

    However, there is one part of the book, and of Ware's theology, that I think needs to be cautioned against and corrected. This is his "Compatibilist Middle Knowledge". For those in the Reformed Perspective, you should be aware that Ware's perspective on middle knowledge is not very widely held. I think it is misguided and leads to confusion.

    To know why I disagree with Ware, and for an excellent and relatively short article that will be clarifying and edifying, please read Paul Helm's "Shunning Middle Knowledge" article, found here http://paulhelmsdeep.blogspot.com/2009/05/shunning-middle-knowledge.html

    To be clear, the book is well worth a read - as long as you take an extra fifteen minutes and read Helm's article as well!

  • An outstanding book on the glory of our Father. Bruce Ware does a good job of describing our God from scripture. It will make you want to go to your knees and praise Him.

  • This is one of the questions answered for me while reading this book. Tremendous help in getting to know God. God's Greater Glory is one from my top ten list. Ware has a way of helping you have a high view of God. I would highly recommend this book to Believers wanting to know their God more.

  • Excellent! This book is a deeper walk through God's sovereignty in the biblical characters presented in scripture and in our lives.

  • Highly recommend.
