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 brings Jordan’s work to the attention of a wider audience and introduces the work of a scholar that R.R. Reno has called “one of the most important Christian intellectuals of our day.”

This festschrift ably 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.
