Glory Hunger: God, the Gospel, and Our Quest for Something More

By JR Vassar, Foreword by Matt Chandler

... Show All

Whose glory are you seeking?

We all want to be significant. This is natural and good—evidence of our God-given desire for meaning and purpose. However, our longing for significance can easily twist into an insatiable craving for approval, recognition, and praise. If left unchecked, this craving will enslave us.

In Glory Hunger, pastor JR Vassar challenges us to renounce a life of reputation building, helping us find freedom in the gospel and joy in God's glory.

“A helpful meditation on the goodness of our search for glory, where it goes wrong, and how to set our hearts on the path to everlasting glory.”
Bethany L. Jenkins, Founder, The Park Forum

“Hits the nail on the head about the condition of the human heart. In today’s world of obsession with fame and of a “me first” mentality, Vassar delivers a timely message. Great food for thought and medicine for the soul.”
Bryan Loritts, Pastor for Preaching and Mission, Trinity Grace Church, New York City; Founder and President, The Kainos Movement; Editor, Letters to a Birmingham Jail

“A penetrating look behind the curtain of what drives everything we do in life. I love Vassar’s discernment into the heart of man in Glory Hunger.”
Matt Carter, Pastor of Preaching, The Austin Stone Community Church, Austin, Texas; coauthor, The Real Win

“Vassar diagnoses the central problem of every human heart with the brilliance of a surgeon, but—even better—he shows us with pastoral wisdom and fatherly care the words that will heal us forever.”
Jared C. Wilson, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Author in Residence, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, The Imperfect Disciple and Love Me Anyway

“A great reminder of God’s passion for his glory. My friend JR Vassar challenges our addiction to worldly glory and compels us to ascribe to Jesus the glory that he deserves. Read this book, reflect on its challenge, and apply it to your life.”
Doug Logan, Jr., Lead Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship of Camden, Camden, New Jersey
