About-

Over the past several decades, Reformed theologian and biblical scholar James B. Jordan has produced a unique body of work. His electrifying commentaries and essays on Scripture, along with his penetrating writings on Trinitarian theology, liturgics, music, and culture have inspired a growing number of pastors and theologians. In this Festschrift, Jordan's friends and associates celebrate his contributions by applying his methods and insights to a range of biblical, theological, liturgical, and cultural questions. The Glory of Kings aims to bring Jordan's work to the attention of a wider audience and to introduce the work of a scholar that R. R. Reno has called "one of the most important Christian intellectuals of our day."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This Festschriftably honors Jim Jordan and his brilliant body of work, which has illumined the glories of biblical structure, symbolism, and typology like few others in our day. Perhaps his greatest legacy, however, will be how he inspired a new generation to see the Scriptures and God's world through new, more perceptive eyes. Some of today's most insightful Reformed pastors and teachers influenced by Jim have penned this excellent collection of essays in his honor--a masterful tribute befitting a master scholar-teacher."
-Roy Atwood
President, New Saint Andrews College

"James B. Jordan is remarkable. There are plenty of Bible preachers in America who know the Scriptures well. Lots of professors read books in philosophy, history, and literature and have all sorts of interesting things to say about culture. Pundits cultivate a sharp, pungent, and readable style. But Jim is perhaps unique. Who else writes detailed interpretations of the book of Daniel and quotes Allen Tate's poetry? Who else can give a lecture on echoes of Leviticus in the apocalyptic vision of Zechariah and then chat over cigars about Friedrich von Hayek and Richard Weaver? Moreover, who can cover such a range with vivid images, punchy taglines, and memorable turns of phrase? Not many, which is why I've come to think of Jim Jordan as one of the most important Christian intellectuals of our day."
-From the Foreword by R. R. Reno, Editor of First Things
