The Bible assures us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. But what is the fear of the Lord? This book uses the word of God to describe it and illustrate it. It’s prominence in Biblical thought and of those whose experience is recorded for us in the word of God is highlighted.
What are the ingredients of the fear of God? What is its source? How is it cultivated? What effect will it have on those who know it? This book shows us how this profound sense of God’s greatness along with a pervasive sense of His presence, allied to a constraining sense of our obligations to Him, is essential to practical goodliness and worship.
This book is very much needed at this time, when the fear of God is disappearing from many church’s witness and worship. It is written with a pastoral tenderness and searching application and should cause all who read it to see the need to, “Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.”
