Book Summary of The Beauty of the Lord by Jonathan King


God is beautiful, therefore everything He does is beautiful. His beauty is closely related to His glory, but they are not the same. In a similar way to how everything God does is glorious because God does everything for His own glory, likewise, everything He does is beautiful because He is beautiful. 

The storyline of the Bible bears this out. Everything God created was good, which has a close connection to beauty. Humans made in the image of God reflect His beauty, but God’s beauty is seen supremely in the person and work of Christ. Christ is beautiful in His person as the second person of the Trinity who came to serve and give His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45). From Christ’s incarnation to His atonement to the consummation of His kingdom, He displays the beauty of God for those with the eyes of faith to see it.
