Honor and shame influence every major aspect of life, whether in relationships, politics, or social media. It's not surprising, then, to find that honor and shame shape the biblical message and all that Christians are called to be. Unfortunately, many leaders and laypersons do not grasp the theological and practical significance of these concepts for the church.
Therefore, this book provides an accessible entry point for engaging these topics in everyday Christian living. Seeking God's Face contains 101 practical reflections on honor and shame taken from across the pages of Scripture. It presents honor and shame, not as abstract concepts, but as compelling issues that affect evangelism, spiritual formation, and discipleship. Seeking God's Face equips readers to interpret the biblical text faithfully and apply its message meaningfully.
