This Week's Book Review
His Boundless Power
“The Bible declares the ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him; but God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit. . . .’ What research cannot reveal and what reason cannot realize can be ours by revelation given to the trusting child of God by the Holy Spirit. Of Him, the Lord Jesus said . . . : ‘I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is to come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come’ (John 16:12, 13). The Almighty has given to us the universe, which is His general revelation. By meticulous and reverent study we can learn much of its meaning and therefore appreciate increasingly its Creator. The Bible is God’s special revelation, given to us by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and preserved for us all down the generations since first it was given to the prophets and apostles. . . . As we ponder God’s Word and believe it, we realize likewise that there is much beyond our understanding; and therefore we look to the Author Himself to teach us. What we cannot perceive, God can and does reveal to us. By observation and reason we could not find the Almighty; but God has revealed Himself in His Word, His Works, and His Son our Savior the Lord Jesus” (V. Raymond Edman. But God! : Little Lessons of Large Importance Learned from the Holy Scriptures. Zondervan, 1962. pp. 113-114).
