Many vital truths are given to us in the Bible that lead us to a vastly greater understanding of Him than the most intelligent heathen without a Bible could ever know. We refer to these truths as mysteries, not because man has invented this term, but because it is the word that God Himself has chosen to inform us of His wonderful way of salvation. In The Mysteries of God, author Maurice Roberts reminds us that it is important that we be thoroughly informed about God’s mysteries because they are His eternal purposes by which He has given Christ to be our Savior; understanding and believing them give us eternal life with God in the glory of heaven. In an edifying and easy-to-understand style, the author “investigates” twelve of the great mysteries of the Bible, including the mystery of God, the mystery of the gospel, the mystery of Christ’s glorious indwelling, and the mystery of the last things.

“When Rev. Maurice Roberts puts pen to paper, a classic is in the making. One dear Christian I know reads only Octavius Winslow, Horatius Bonar, and Maurice Roberts because, in his words, ‘I find spiritual profit on every page.’ Rev. Roberts is known to combine simplicity, profundity, and clarity, all of which are certainly requisite for any treatment of Bible mysteries. This book is so insightful, well-ordered, and helpful, it seems hard to imagine Christian readers have been without it for so long.” — Gerald M. Bilkes, professor of New Testament and biblical theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
