Christians have a glorious destiny, but it can be difficult to see how this makes any practical difference to our lives. In fact, if we’re honest, it’s all too easy to concentrate on the here and now and to forget that we’re heading anywhere particularly glorious at all.
In Breathtaking Glory, Tom Robson invites us to pause from the demands of our busy lives and to look afresh at where we’re heading. Rooted in Scripture, this book redirects our gaze to Christ and helps us to consider how his grace, faithfulness and victory — one day to be fully enjoyed — can actually be experienced now.
To understand why heaven will be so glorious we need to fix our eyes on the King of glory himself. When we do this, we’ll find that not only do we enjoy living for him more each day but our longing to be with him in our future heavenly home will also grow.
What others are saying about Breathtaking Glory:
"Written simply, clearly and humbly, this short book invites us to look up and see God's glory from the Bible's beginning to its end. And then to be changed by the sight."
— Andrew Cornes, Former Minister, All Saints Crowborough
"So often I have a small view of who God is and what He can do. In this little book, Tom Robson encouraged me to use my imagination to have a bigger view. Thinking over these four vivid pictures of God's glory in the Bible gave me a glimpse of our eternal home in glory. That bigger view now is what will keep us going until we will see Jesus face to face."
— Liz Cox, Minister for Women & Community, St Giles' Church Derby and Chair of Midlands Women's Convention
"Fresh and warmly written, Breathtaking Glory unfolds a lovely view of the glory of God. In a few brief chapters Tom Robson shows us God's grace, faithfulness and ultimate triumph in Jesus Christ such that the reader is humbled, thrilled and edified in equal measure."
— Reuben Hunter, Lead Pastor, Trinity West Church

Tom Robson takes the reader on a mountain ascent to view the glory of God. After offering a definition of glory, we embark on the gradual, spiritual climb. On the way he asks us to stop and take in three specific vistas of God’s glory – the glory of God’s grace, the glory of God’s faithfulness and the glory of God’s victory. Individual chapters illustrate how the Christian experiences these particular aspects of God’s glory, using key passages from Scripture. In these chapters, each with imaginative titles, the reader is helped to envision God’s glory by exploring foundational Christian truths. The author then leads us up to the mountain top where we see how these aspects of God’s glory combine to enable us to see Jesus as described in Revelation 4. This view of God’s glory in Christ is exhilarating. The book will appeal to a wide range of readers including seasoned pilgrims, new Christians and those who are seeking to understand the greatness of God for the first time. As I finished the book, I found myself singing ‘The Lamb is all the glory Of Immanuel’s Land’!
