An Approach from Biblical and Systematic Theology
Published in Studia Biblica et Theologica, March 1971
Fuller Theological Seminary
God is the one Being in all the universe for whom seeking his own praise is the ultimately loving act. For him self-exaltation is the highest virtue.
The point of Hosea is that God exalts his mercy by not giving up on his promiscuous wife.
Contained in the name Yahweh is the first and most important truth about God: he exists.
The omnipotence of God means reverence, recompense, and refuge, for his covenant people.
At the end of every road is God. You will meet him as light and life or as fire and torment.

God responds with
terrible wrath against those whose hearts should belong to him but go
after other things.
In the Lord's prayer, Jesus teaches that the first priority in praying is to ask that our heavenly Father's name be hallowed.
God's first love is his name and not his people. And because it is, there is hope for his sinful people.
Those who know God as Father should honor their majestic Father.
God is more powerful than
all the gods and he is more powerful than all the nations. On God's side you cannot lose.

Meditations on God's Delight in Being God
“God’s delight in being God is not sung the way it should be, with wonder and passion, in the worship places of the word. And we are the poorer and weaker for it. My hope and prayer in writing this book is that more and more people would meditate with me on the pleasures of God” (p. 7).
Do you love the thought that you exist to make God look good?
